I am trainee for 2 months at the Marine Environment Observatory of Martinique 
and working with Sophie Brugneaux. The Observatory would like to improve its 
knowledge about sponges of the Caribbean. 
For this, I am searching complementary information about:
-how pollution (organic, inorganic, sewage) affect sponges
-how natural perturbations (hurricane) affect sponges
-population structuration depending on factors such as nutrients, bathymetry, 
-distribution (Atlantic vs Caribbean coast)
-identification: is any key available for the sponges of the Caribbean?

In fact, I would appreciate any information that could help the observatory 
better understand the role and importance of the sponges in the marine 
ecosystem of Martinique.
Thanks for your help.
