Dear Coral-Listers,

Is someone knowing about papers talking about differences in sponges community 
between the leeward and the windward area of a Caribbean island?

I would also like to better understand the evolutionary history of the 
Caribbean Sea and why it is so rich in nutrients en sediments, in comparison 
with the Pacific (Wilkinson and Cheshire explain it too briefly in 1990, 
Comparison of sponges population across the Great Barrier reef of Australia 
and Belize: evidence for higher productivity in the Caribbean).
