There are several papers on Eastern Pacific coral reproduction by Peter
Glynn and colleagues. Two of the primary study sites are in Panama, one at
Uva Island, and the other at Saboga Island.
Here is one of the earlier references that I have handy. Others are also
published in Marine Biology.
1994. Glynn, P.W., S.B. Colley, C.M. Eakin, D.B. Smith, J. Cortés, N.J.
Gassman, H.M. Guzmán, J.B. Del Rosario & J.S. Feingold. Reef coral
reproduction in the eastern Pacific: Costa Rica, Panamá, and the Galápagos
Islands (Ecuador). II. Poritidae. Marine Biology, 118: 191-208.
I suggest that you look up these papers and peruse the materials and
methods section therein.
