Dear All,

Some time back I used the weight to diameter relation for crown of
thorns W=0.108D^2.637. However I have now lost the reference for the
same. Can anyone on the list help me with the reference?

Dear All

We visited again in December to see if at all
there is any change or increase in the tumors
like anomalies that we had noticed in

There is no change!!! however we still plan to
look at it every now and then....

Photos can be  seen here: 

But, this year there has been increased
appearence of COTS in this area and they are
feeding happiely on the corals present
here...hmmm....one problem is gone and other has
surfaced up...
COTS photos are here:

I hopw the corals here can withstand the COTS...
But soon, it is time for Drupella to arrive!!
wow...it is busy time for the corals to face all
kinds of stress one after the other...

Thanks for your time
