The Shallow-Water Scleractinia of Jamaica: Revised List of Species and their Vertical Distribution Range
Recent underwater studies carried out on the coral reefs off the north coast of Jamaica have turned up 62 species of shallow-water scleractinian corals; seven of these are undescribed and three were not previously reported from the Caribbean area. In Jamaica, rich and diverse reef-coral populations occur down to 70 meters, and some forms grow down to 100 meters. The species composition and observed vertical ranges of the Jamaican shallow-water coral fauna are summarized in tables.
