Dear coral-list readers,

I am a Ph.D. student working on environmental controls of coral reef growth.
I am looking for information regarding physiological reactions / adaptations of the elkhorn coral Acropora palmata to physico-chemical parametres (the effect of light, nutrients, temperature, wave-power, ...on coral growth, calcification, etc...).
Any information could help. Also information on whoever is working or has worked on this field.
Thank you very much!!
