Branches represent families (thickness is in proportion to number of genera); suborders are indicated by horizontal labels. Modified from Corals of the World (Veron , vol. 1, p. 36) by J. E. N. Veron and used with Veron's permission. Revision of the Suborders, Families, and Genera of the Scleractinia () is perhaps his great est contribution to coral biology. This monograph was the first modern synthesis of the higher- level classification of the Scleractinia (the preceding being that of Duncan in ) and is the basic reference for most coral workers.
Abstract. Fauna of the circumpolar Arctic and Antarctic regions was compared based on the example of cold-water Scleractinia corals. In similar subzero temperatures of surrounding waters, not only the distribution of corals, but also the number of species and their morphological characteristics differ radically between the Arctic and Antarctic (17 coral species occur in the Subantarctic region.

Introduction. The family Poritidae Gray, is distributed throughout the tropics and includes over nominal species, some of which are among the major coral reef framework family formerly included 6 extant genera (currently Alveopora is not included), 3 of which are species-rich —Porites Link, (73 species), Goniopora de Blainville, (31 spp.), and Alveopora de.

Revision of the suborders, families and genera of the Scleractinia. Special Papers of the Geological Society of America 1– Within the Scleractinia, most families composed exclusively by zooxanthellate species are polyphyletic on the basis of molecular data, and the second most speciose coral family, the.
One result of this association was their monumental volume on the revision of Scleractinia 1 in During Wells taught at the State Normal School at Fredonia, now part of the state university system of New York, but soon left for a position at Ohio State University, where a former Cornell classmate, W.
Storrs Cole, was on the faculty. The characteristics ascribed to the genus (family, subor-der) are entirely based on the concept presented by Alloi-teau, not on any type material. The genera and families of the suborder are in need of a thorough revision based on type material.
The genus Anisoriais therefore only pro-visionally assigned to the Meandrinidae family. It is closely. The most recent taxonomic revision of the Scleractinia (Veron,) divides the order into 13 suborders of which 7 have living representatives. Nine of these suborders were present in the Mid-Triassic ( million years ago) when the Scleractinia first appear in the fossil record.
Abstract. The very common and species-rich Scleractinian genus Actinastrea (family Actinastraeidae, suborder Archeocaeniina) is revised on the basis of the type material of its type species and additional material from the type locality.
A lectotype is designated for the type species. It was discovered that Jurassic to Early Cretaceous corals currently assigned to Actinastrea do not fit into.

Coelenterata. Geological Society of America, Lawrence, FF; Wells JW. The combination of coloniality and symbiosis in Scleractinia is thought to confer competitive advantage over other benthic invertebrates, and it is likely the key factor for the dominance of corals in tropical reefs. However, the extant Scleractinia are evenly split between zooxanthellate and azooxanthellate species.
Most azooxanthellate species are solitary and nearly absent from reefs, but. A revision of the Recent colonial Astræidæ possessing distinct corallites. Transactions of the Linnean Society of London 1– Revision of the suborders, families, and genera of the Scleractinia.
