Dear Coral-listers,
I am currently studying the isotopic composition (d18O and d13C) of some 
fossil Porites collected from the Indonesian Island of Alor. Intra-annual 
variability of carbon shows a distinctive annual signal - perhaps related 
to annual spawning.  Therefore, I am trying to find out what time of year 
corals spawn in Alor (or East Nusa Tenggara in general) today - there is 
very little information available on the subject, and any help would be 
greatly appreciated!
