Dear Fellow Coral-Listers:

I've already received over 60 requests for the list of coral disease
peer-reviewed publications.  Instead of sending this to everyone
individually, I will paste the list here and also attach it as a
word-processing file.  The webmaster of this listserver has graciously
offered to add coral disease publications to the CHAMP (Coral Health and
Monitoring Program) data base.  With the help of a CHAMP-associated
Librarian, I will soon be able to add the list, plus associated
abstracts, to the CHAMP coral reef references.

If you have any peer-reviewed coral disease papers that are not included
in the list, please send them to me (copy of paper to: Dr. Laurie
Richardson, Biology Department, Florida International University, Miami,
Florida, 33199, USA) and I will include it as we put together the CHAMP
coral disease reference site.   At this time I have not included papers
in press.  I have also not included abstracts and non-peer reviewed
papers about coral diseases.

Thanks so much for your interest.   Laurie Richardson
