A coral reef paper came out in Science on April 2:  Kleypas, Buddemeier,
Archer, Gattuso, Landgon, and Opdyke "Geochemical consequences of
increased atmospheric CO2 on coral reefs".  There has been media interest
in the story, which includes two recent stories by Reuters that can be
found at "http://dailynews.yahoo.com/headlines/sc/index.html"

(1) Carbon Dioxide Could Be Killing Coral, Study Says
(2) Australia Great Barrier Reef Faces Death Knell

We stress that much work still needs to be done on this topic, but feel it
is important to stir the interest of reef researchers along these lines.

sincerely, jk
