The citation has now been inserted in Discussion, Oscula Number and Their Cross-Sectional Area, paragraph 1 and should read: “In both the temperate and tropical species analyzed in this study, the relationships between the total OSA (i.e., the total osculum cross-sectional area) and sponge volume conformed to a power function allometric scaling with a similar exponent (b = 0.6−0.7), except for tropical HMAs (b = 0.99). Due to the high morphological plasticity of sponges, changes in the number of oscula and aquiferous modules may be attributed to different environmental conditions (Plotkin et al., 1999; Ereskovskii, 2003). A correction has been made to Introduction, paragraph 3: “Direct relationship between the osculum cross-sectional area and the amount of water pumped by a sponge has been recently demonstrated in laboratory experiments with small sponge explants (Strehlow et al., 2016; Kumala et al., 2017; Goldstein et al., 2019; Kealy et al., 2019) and in one in situ study (Gökalp et al., 2020b), suggesting that osculum cross-sectional area and the number of oscula may be more practical predictors of sponge pumping.”
