Reproductive integration in reef corals

Smithsonian Libraries
The extent of colonial integration in structurally simple animals like scleractinian corals is poorly understood. We have used sexual reproductive characters (location of fertile polyps and colony size at maturation) to assess colony-level individuality, i.e., the development, in coral colonies, of characters above the polyp level. Ten morphologically-diverse species of reef corals were used: Acropora cervicornis, A. palmata, Diploria clivosa, D. strigosa, Favia fragum, Montastrea cavernosa, Porites astreoides, P. furcata, Siderastrea radians, and S. siderea. In no species were equally fertile polyps homogeneously distributed throughout a colony. Most inhomogeneities of fertile polyps could be attributed to intra-colony position or ontogenetic effects. The results of simple manipulations simulating natural wounds in three massive species strengthen the evidence that the position of polyps within a colony determines fertility. Small colonies are not reproductive. Puberty size (colony size at maturation) could be explained by the infertility pattern along the colony margin, which does not require colony-level integration. Shape-related growth constraints could also produce the puberty size patterns found in massive corals. Infertility in the short radial polyps of A. palmata and in the axial polyps of A. cervicornis provided the only clear evidence of reproductive integration in this study: both are related to a morphological characteristic (polyp dimorphism) commonly associated with integration in colonial invertebrates.

Lasico 130-E Mechanical Integrator with Electronic Readout

National Museum of American History
Maximilian Berktold (b. 1929) immigrated from Kempten-Allgäu, West Germany, in 1950 and almost immediately began working for the Los Angeles Scientific Instrument Company. He oversaw design and production of the firm's planimeters, integrators, pantographs, and various optical instruments until Lasico closed in 2008.

This is the electronic version of the Lasico mechanical integrator 130. It has a metal framework painted green that carries two guide wheels, two reference guides (one for moment of inertia and the other for moment of area) and a tracer arm with two tracer points. The guide wheels fit into a metal guide rail. Two reference guides also fit into the guide rail and a metal counter weight fits into the framework, resting on the other side of the rail.

In addition to these pieces, there are three digital readouts for displaying measurements of area (marked A), moment of area (marked M), and moment of inertia (marked I).

All the pieces of the instrument, other than the rail, fit into a leather-covered wooden case. A photograph of Berktold is taped to the inside lid of the case, as well as a sheet of information about the instrument. This sheet gives a date of 1985. The guide rail is longer than the case is wide (it measures 78.5 cm. w. x 5 cm. d. x 1.3 cm. h.), and is stored separately.

A related pamphlet is entitled “The Lasico Mechanical Integrator.”

Integrator, LASICO Model 130-V

National Museum of American History
This mechanical integrator has a metal framework painted off-white that carries two guide wheels, two reference guides (one for moment of inertia and the other for moment of area), and a tracer arm with two tracer points. The guide wheels fit into a metal rail. Two reference guides also fit into the rail and a metal counter weight fits into the framework, resting on the other side of the rail.

All the pieces of the instrument other than the rail fit into a leather-covered wooden case. Labeled photographs of designer Maxmilian Berktold and Susan Jen are inside of the case, with labels. The rail (2011.0043.04.1)is longer than the case is wide (it measures 77 cm. w. x 5 cm. d. x 1.3 cm. h.), and is stored separately.

There also are pamphlets entitled “The Lasico Mechanical Integrator” (2011.0043.04.2) and “Mathematical Engineering Instruments,” (2011.0043.04.3) as well as a leaflet entitled “LASICO Mechanical Integrators” (2011.0043.04.4) This instrument is most like one shown in the leaflet, which dates from 1980.

The model 130-V mechanical integrator had a catalog price of $1500.
