Dear Shimrit, coral-list,

Our recent paper examined settlement of coral larvae in flow water in lab,
which used a racetrack flume.

Harii, S. and Kayanne, H. (2002): Larval settlement of corals in flowing
water using a racetrack flume. Mar. Tech. Soc. J, 36, 76-79.

As far as we know, no studies published had examined coral larvae
settlement in different flow regimes in lab experiment. We also would like
to appreciate the information on this issue.

Best wishes,

appreciate any
