Dear Coral-listers:

The Perry Institute for Marine Science (PIMS) is continuing its series of
posters with one featuring Acropora palmata. The previous posters include
the queen conch, spiny lobster and Nassau grouper. Each has highlighted
the life cycle, nutrition and other salient aspects of each of these
important species. All have included an emphasis on both artistic and
factual accuracy.

The following images are needed to help the artist depict A. palmata's
early life stages. It is not intended that the images will be directly
copied, rather multiple images will be used to develop representative
composite drawings. If you have any such images, your assistance in this
project will be most appreciated!

Needed images:

1. Egg-sperm bundles being released.
2. Isolated egg-sperm bundles.
3. Micrographs of eggs and/or sperm.
4. Motile planulae.
5. Planulae on settlement surface.
6. Initial polyp.
7. Very young colonies (5-10 polyps).

Many thanks!
