I have been trying to find literature regarding studies conducted on
tropical soft-bottom communities associated with coral reefs. Ideally, I
am looking for studies which have concentrated on sand patches on the outer
reef slope. However, the only papers I have been able to find are those by
Betz and Otte (1980), Grelet et al., (1987), Jones (1984) and Thomassin et
al., (1982), .
I would be very grateful for any information on other relevant literature.
