Hi. I am a student, and new to this list.
My project is trying to investigate the effects of hyposalinity on
scleractinian and octocorals.
1. I am wondering if anyone has contemplated the El Nino effects as being
not just temperature but also, with the change in climate (hurricanes,
high rainfall, etc), the likelihood of hyposalinity as a major stress
2 Any leads to recent materials on hyposalinity and corals would be
appreciated (the searches I did yielded dated stuff which is useful but
not up to date).
3. As well, any one who has worked on HELIOPORA COERULEA in terms of
tolerances, requirements in nature, problems in keeping in aquaria, etc?
I would greatly appreciate your kind inputs on any one of the above query.
Thanking you in advance,
