Visualization flow of water in a sponge - Aquarius Reef Base ; Fluorescein dye is used to visualize how water is absorbed at the outside and then exhausted by a sponge.The Caribbean barrel sponge, Xestospongia muta, is a large and common member of the coral reef communities at depths greater than 10 m, and has been called the “redwood of the deep”, due to its up to 2000 year lifespan as well as its size and color. Despite its prominence, high biomass and importance to habitat complexity and reef health, very little is know about the basic biology of this massive sponge, including rates of mortality and recruitment, reproduction, growth and age. Like reef corals, this sponge is subject to bleaching and subsequent mortality.<br>With support from NOAA's Aquarius Reef Base at UNCW, NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program, and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, a research group has been monitoring populations of X. muta in the Florida Keys since 1997.Visualization flow of water in a sponge - Aquarius Reef BaseVisualization flow of water in a sponge - Aquarius Reef Base ; Fluorescein dye is used to visualize how water is absorbed at the outside and then exhausted by a sponge.The Caribbean barrel sponge, Xestospongia muta, is a large and common member of the coral reef communities at depths greater than 10 m, and has been called the “redwood of the deep”, due to its up to 2000 year lifespan as well as its size and color.

Monitoring of sponge respiration - Aquarius Reef Bas Florida ; non-calcifying reef organisms like sponges will likely benefit from negative impacts to corals caused by ocean acidification and climate change; research data suggest that water passing through a filter feeding X muta sponge drops more than 0.01 pH units, a significant fraction of the 0.1 drop that has already resulted from the acidification of the ocean by the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide in recent decades.; scientists try to understand how to distinguish local acidification processes, like that from sponge respiration, from the global scale changes now occurring around the world. Only in this decade have scientists fully realized the threat of global acidification to calcifying organisms such as corals.
