Dear coral-listers,

                I am trying to track down information on the secretion
of mucus by corals (Acropora) which have suffered physical damage (e.g.
damage caused by boat groundings). Specifically I am after information
on the timing of mucus secretion - how soon after damage occurs does
mucus secretion occur and for how long is mucus secreted.
