Our class began our study this week on Coral Reefs as we located where the majority of Coral Reefs are located around the world between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn latitudes. Warm clear water, sunlight are necessary for coral reefs to grow.
We discussed reef composition consisting of reef builders and reef inhabitants. We drew a detail of Corallite that highlighted nematrocyts, septa, and columella.
