Dear colleagues,

It is surprising that in this period of degradation of the coral reefs the Caribbean hybrid Acropora prolifera is proliferating during last four decades. This counter-intuitive trend is evident due to the facts that the hybrid was found lately in more places, in larger quantity of colonies and in various growth forms.I would greatly appreciate anyinformation and advise on this matter.

Also, any data aboutfossilA. prolifera?  

Thanks in advance!
