|Abstract:||Reproductive data for 24 of the 50 plus species of scleractinian corals
in Hawai'i are available. A majority of species (75%) are broadcast spawners, just
over half (58%) of which are hermaphrodites. Peak reproduction of Hawaiian
corals occurs during summer months, although reproduction continues year round
for some brooders. Timing, duration, mode, and location of reproductive
processes have implications for disturbance management, assessment, and conservation
of reef corals.
