Dear Coral-listers,

        As already announced earlier this year an ICRI regional meeting is
to take place in Noumea (New Caledonia) on May 22-24 this year. As there are
a number of coral bleaching events currently occuring in the region, we
would very much appreciate if participants who are aware of such events in
their area could bring with them any of the following information:
1 - areas hit by these phenomena : surface estimates, depth range, biotope... 
2 - indication on the species which seem the most affected and those which
seem to be least affected
3- any quantitative data. Maps showing the extension of the problem would be
extremely useful
4 - observations on associated species : fish, echinoderms, crustaceans ...
which show some change in their behavior or distribution next to these
bleaching events

        For further information of this ICRI meeting please contact the
following e-mail:

        Michel Kulbicki
        (as co-ordinator of the Noumea ICRI meeting)
