Greetings Coral-listers,

For those of you who may be interested in competitive interactions
between sponges and corals, and the use of a diving PAM fluorometer, we
have a new publication:

Pawlik, J.R., Steindler, L., Henkel, T.P., Beer, S., and Ilan, M.  2007.
Chemical warfare on coral reefs: Sponge metabolites differentially
affect coral symbiosis in situ. Limnology and Oceanography  52: 907-911.
