Firstly I would like to thank everyone for their replies to my email 
regarding software to analyse video transects, the response was great, and 
certainly shows the benefits of this list.

I was wondering if anyone has done any studies involving diseased corals 
where the active margin has been completely removed from the infected 
colonies and monitored the colony for reinfection?  Has anyone had any 
success in stopping progressive disease/syndrome by removing the 
margin?  Any comments would be welcome
