Dear Coral-List,

I am collecting data on the broad- and micro-scale habitat distributions
of the living Eastern, Central, and Western Pacific zooxanthellate
(hermatypic) corals.  I am looking for either published accounts of where
coral species live, including there depth distributions and habitat type.  
I am also including personal observations in the data set.  While the
extremes of a habitat range are informative, my main interest is in the
habitats where a species reaches it's greatest abundance, on a "typical"
reef.  If your not using accepted scientific nomenclature (i.e., that of
J.E.N. Veron), please provide me the background to what you are calling a

Information can be e-mailed, mailed, or faxed to me at the address below.
