Dear Coral-listers,

Looking at the literature, I was quite surprised to find very 
little empirical work on the effects of nutrient enrichment 
on algal growth (particularly macroalgae). 

I've come across papers by Lapointe, Littler, McCook, the ENCORE work, 
and the Kaneohe Bay stuff, but precious few lab studies. If anyone could 
direct me to other studies (possibly in the grey literature), I'd be extremely 
grateful and will of course disseminate the results to anyone interested.

With thanks,

P.S. does anyone have Mark Littler's email address?
