Coral List,

Here's a quote from the abstract of the paper that is referred to in 
Gene's message.  Just for clarification...

"We show that 10 of the 18 species studied exhibited
reduced rates of net calcification and, in some cases, net dissolution
under elevated pCO2. However, in seven species, net calcification
increased under the intermediate and/or highest levels of pCO2, and
one species showed no response at all."

Those into ocean acidification will appreciate this. And yes GEOLOGY is 
a peer reviewed journal. Gene
