Hi everyone,

I hope this finds you well.  As part of my research program, I am 
currently conducting a phylogeographic study of the "weedy" sea anemone 
Aiptasia and its algal symbionts (dinoflagellates belonging to the 
genus Symbiodinium).  Currently, I have several hundred individuals 
from around the world, including parts of Okinawa, Hawaii, the Florida 
Keys and the Red Sea.  However, given the wide geographic range of 
Aiptasia, I do not currently have samples from many parts of the world. 
    I would greatly appreciate if you or your research group would be 
willing to send me 20-30 individuals from your geographic area to 
further this study.  If this is possible, please contact me and I will 
pass along information regarding how they can be preserved for genetic 
analyses and shipped with a minimal of effort.

Thank you in advance,

Scott R. Santos
