This message is to inform coral reef workers and all other researchers
interested in reproductive biology and ecology of coral reef biota of a
newly approved mini symposium topic for the 9th ICRS at Bali:
"Reproduction, recruitment, and effects of stress on reproductive success
of corals and other reef invertebrates". As the title suggests, the
mini-symposium will focus on reproduction and recruitment patterns of
corals and other reef invertebrates, with an additional focus on the
effects of natural and anthropogenic pollution and stress impacts on
reproductive output and success of these organisms. Note that this
mini-symposium will not include papers dealing with pelagic and settlement
stages of reef fishes which is the focus of another mini-symposium. The
mini-symposium could be expanded to include reproductive ecology of algae
if there is sufficient interest among researchers.

Please contact me by return email if you are interested in contributing to
this session, or would like further details.

Participants should send Abstract/s to me (pharriso at AND to Dr
David Hopley, the Chair of the Scientific Program
(David.Hopley at by the APRIL 30 deadline.  Abstracts should be
submitted in the format given on the conference web page
(, and participants are encouraged to submit
Abstracts in an electronic format to assist with the preparation of the
Symposium Abstract booklet.  Abstracts are required for both oral
presentations and posters.

I look forward to seeing you at this stimulating session!
