Use the “Corals as” tabs below to explore the “Termigator” – our interactive visual glossary of the terms used by the Coral Finder and the Coral Hub. If you already know the term you are looking for then use the alphabetical listing of all the terms in the table below. Note: the terms used by the Coral Finder and Coral Hub are a useful “subset” of all those used by coral taxonomists for species level coral identification. Simplifying the jargon allows beginners to get a foothold. A more comprehensive account of coral related terminology can be found in Veron, J. E. N. (2000). Corals of the World.
