Notes

Abstract: The effects of light and sedimentation on wound healing in coral remain unclear. Past studies have indicated that sedimentation stress before wound infliction promotes the redistribution of energy to colony maintenance and wound healing. Other studies investigating the effects of light attenuation on wound healing have shown mixed data. Using aquacultured fragments of Acropora secale, this study focused on the effects of sedimentation and the zooxanthellae in wound healing. The results from the sedimentation portion were inconclusive. However, other results indicated that the zooxanthellae play a secondary role in wound healing, and that nutrients from heterotrophic activity are critical. The wounds inflicted for this set of studies were deep tissue wounds, and the corals were monitored until visibly healed. The wound healing rates (mm�/day) were highly reduced as compared to others found in the literature for similar species.
