Some of the papers on the dieoff and subsequent effects are: 

Carpenter, R. C. (1985). "Sea urchin mass-mortality: effects on reef algal 
abundance, species  composition, and metabolism and other coral 
reefherbivores. Abstract." Proceedings of the Fifth International Coral Reef 
Congress, Tahiti 4: 53. 
Carpenter, R. C. (1988). "Mass mortality of a Caribbean sea urchin: immediate 
effects on community  metabolism and other herbivores." Proceedings of the 
National Academy of Sciences of the United States of  America 85: 511-514.

population  densities and grazing intensity of parrotfishes and 
surgeonfishes." Marine Biology 104: 79-86.

effects on sea  urchin population-dynamics and coral reef algal communities." 
Marine Biology 104: 67-77.

composition following the mass mortality of Diadema at Jamaica." Journal of

I am in the process of compiling information about the dieoff events of 
Diadema antillarum in the Florida Keys as well as 
the rest of the Caribbean.  I am interested in both information about the 
mid-eighties dieoff as well as any information on 
more recent events (Forcucci,1994).  Any advice or information would be 
greatly appreciated.
