[Coral-List] Presentation

Hi all!
I'm new at the list and at coral world research itself. I'm a Veterinarian
but not working in clinics but in travel and dive issues.
I've just discovered the amazing world of corals and want to bet for it and
its knowledge and conservation here in Spain, where I live, and over the
world. My idea is, with time and a lot of learning, becoming part of any
project (new or existent) that involves he sea health...

Actually I'm collaboration in the translation into spanish of a web page
dedicated to coral and plan to do a educative programme with time.
At the end of the year I'll join a 9 months study of coral in the Australian
and Indonesian seas, on board of Heraclitus, and meanwhile I want to learn
and do as much as I can in this field...

Just this presentation to tell you I'm learning a lot here, and would love
to participate and have all the ideas you may give to me. Anything you
consider to tell me, websites to look to, people to met, places to go,
things to read, actions to do, ideas to carry on... do it!!
Any help I could offer, any question or information you want to ask me -not
about corals as you are the experts ;-) - feel free!!

Thanks a lot to all, and remember, here I am!

  Dear coral-listers
  I am interested in obtaining as much information as possible about coral
reef surveys (biodiversity or monitoring etc.) or habitat maps (e.g. showing
coral reef locations) from the Eritrean Red Sea for Eritreas Coastal,
Marine and Island Biodiversity Conservation Project (UNDP/GEF). The Project
has already conducted some of its own surveys, but if anyone out there as
has any more information it would be greatly appreciated.

Dear coral-listers,

I'm investigating the effects of depth on coral growth and survivorship for
my final year undergraduate research project in the National University of
Singapore.  I will be setting out tiles on the reef slope for a 3-4 months
before shifting them up to the reef crest and leaving them out for another
3-4 months before taking them out to measure any differences in size and
survivorship.  As part of this study, I'd have to be able to differentiate
the recruits that settled prior to shifting from the ones that settle
post-shifting.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how I should tag the
recruits, apart from trying to find them individually under a microscope
before shifting and marking them by hand?

I was thinking of marking them with Alizarin S, but am not sure about any
effects this might have on the recruits.  I should be able to use a low
concentration since I'm only trying to faintly dye the existing polyps to b=
able to tell them apart from the ones that recruit later on.

Would appreciate any advice or suggestions anyone might have about this.

Thank you!
