Dear Coral listers,
Like all of you, I have read much mail and literature about expulsion
during bleaching.
I have two questions:

1. Range of tollerance for zoos.  Who is looking into this area?  Briefly,
what has been discovered?
2. Is expulsion the correct term?  Are we looking at death due to
temperature increase and phagocytosis by the host?

I'd like to run some very basic experiments in this area for a course I'm
currently in and would appreciate any references to ongoing studies or
papers in the area.

Thanks and kind regards,
Vanese Flood
