    If you don't have access to the original scientific papers for currently characterized coral diseases, you can obtain progression rates, known etiologies, and excellent photo samples from NOAA's CHAMP site (Coral Health and Monitoring Program), information current to 2004, which defines white plaque, white band, white pox Types I & II, etc..
Site address is http://www.coral.noaa.gov/coral_disease/characterized.shtml
Good luck,

  Hello, Listers,
    I would greatly appreciate a description of the visual differences between the two White Plagues.  
    Also, do they differ in rate of growth, as well as rate of colonization of algae on the freshly dead coral?
