Studies on corals

By C S G Pillai


Around India coral formations are found in the Gulf of Kutch, in the Laccadive sea, in Palk Bay and Gulf of Mannar sides of Mandapam and Rameswaram Island, and encircling the various small islands lying between Rameswaram and Tuticorin, at the northern and southern ends of Ceylon and around Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Corals are extensively used at present as building blocks and a substitute for granite chips to mettle roads and in the preparation of lime, cement and Calcium carbids. It was felt desirable to study the coral fauna of the region and lies between the Maldivian and the Malaysian coral formations and to fill the gap in our knowledge of the distribution of these marine animals in the great Indo Pacific
