Bryozoan sediments

Dear Colleagues,

Currently we are working on the paleoecology of Tertiary 
bryozoan-dominated accumulations (bryozoan limestone and marl) and 
searching for possible recent counterparts. Bryozoan-dominated means 
that some tens of percents (at least 10 %) of the biogenic components (in 
weight) is made of bryozoan skeletons. We think that such 
bryozoan-favouring conditions occur when coral and coralline algal growth 
is restricted.

Did you have in your experience met any recent bryozoan-dominated 
sediments in a tropical or subtropical environment? (Temperate and 
cool-water occurrences are common.)

Can you suggest for us anyone, who might be knowledgeable in this topic, 
esp. biologists?

Many thanks for your help.

Sincerely yours,
