Symbiotic status of the occurring coral, incorporating the uncertainty of inferred symbiotic status. This variable includes assignment with the maximum likely number of azooxanthellate genera.
Growth type of the coral:
Integration of corallites from the scale of 0 to 4.
solitary corals are marked with 0s.
This particular dataset was used in a study by Kiessling and Kocsis (2015). All occurrences of Scleractinia were downloaded from the Paleobiology Database (PaleoDB, http://www.paleobiodb.org/) on 23 September 2014, originally comprising 32420 occurrences. They were than cross-checked with data from Corallosphere (http://corallosphere.org). See the article text for details.
