These data comprise length and width measurements for three species of brooded coral larvae:  Pocillopora damicornis, Seriatopora hystrix and Stylophora pistillata and calculated values of volume and mass.  These data are part of a study that describes the effects of temperature on the respiration of brooded larvae of scleractinian corals, and evaluates the implications of these effects relative to seawater temperature when peak larval release occurs.

These data are published in Edmunds et al. (2011).  J. Exp. Biol. 214, 2783-2790 (see page 2785).
