The IUCN Biodiversity Program and IUCN Marine and Coastal Program are    
seeking to develop an informal consultative group (or "network") on the    
economics of coral reef biodiversity, especially the economic factors of    
biodiversity loss. 

This is part of a wider programme effort undertaken by the Economist of    
the IUCN Biodiversiy Program on understanding and elaborating the    
Economics of Biodiversity Loss.  The marine component of this effort is    
focusing on coral reefs for the present, however there is only limited    
information and few people involved in this field. 

We would be pleased to receive expressions of interest from, or reference    
to, individuals who might be able to contribute their expertise to this    
informal group.  Reference to any relevant literature (published, grey,    
or other) related to the economics of marine biodiversity and specific to    
the economics of coral reef diversity would also be very much
