Description

Experiment testing Janzen-Connell hypothesis in brooding corals - whether juvenile corals experienced distance-dependent mortality near adult conspecifics.

This dataset includes survivorship data for Pocillopora damicornis and Seriatopora hystrix on tiles set out to the east and to the west of each of 10 focal colonies of the two species. Tiles with four coral fragments of the same species as the focal colony were placed at four distances (6, 12, 24, and 182 cm).
