Abstract

Observations and in situ experiments carried out between 1981 and 1983 near Pari Island, Seribu Archipelago, Java Sea, showed that reef-building corals can reiterate their specific colony architecture after being subjected to an environmental trauma which irreversibly alters their characteristic appearance. Beside trees, many fixed colonial organisms such as hydroids, gorgonian, sponges and corals, display this process of architectural adjustment. Reiteration appears to be a fundamental characteristic of sessile organisms.
