Hi All,

I am interested in obtaining average growth rates (cm/yr) (Linear  
extensions) for the following species. I have tried searching the  
literature, but cannot find estimates/measurements for these  
particular species. Any help for locating specific references or even  
ballpark estimates based on personal observations/studies would be  
greatly appreciated.  The species are the following Caribbean corals:
Agaricia tenuifolia
Dichocoenia stokesii
Diploria clivosa
Favia fragum
Oculina diffusa

Many thanks.
