[Coral-List] Looking for reviews on the energy flow through coral reef ecosystems

Hi Mike:

None of this is recent, but I suggest looking at Caroline Roger's 
publications on reef metabolism in Puerto Rico which took off from the 
Odum and Odum (1955) upstream-downstream work on Eniwetak.  Also check 
the SYMBIOS expedition which re-occupied the Odum's transect in 1971.  I 
recall a paper much later in BioScience.  Finally and most obscurely, 
there was an ecosystem project planning effort (CITRE, I forget the 
acronym) at Glover's Reef, Belize in the early 1970s that failed as a 
proposal to NSF, but resulted in an interesting report which somebody on 
the list may have access to.
