To the ICRS participants who missed out on getting a CD on monitoring  
bioeroding sponges:

The material is now available for about 10 d on my ftp-site at:

user: E68947
pass: muhmigud

If you'd rather have the CD itself, please write me an email, I might  
have another batch made at production and shipping cost for whoever  
wants one. But it will be comparatively expensive, because of  
international postage, maybe about 12 USD, so it's probably easier  
just to download it.

Thanks for your enthusiastic response!!

Also, as I am writing anyway: if you have any observations on how  
bioeroding sponge abundances recently develop over time at your site,  
it would be very important to know. And in order to produce field  
guides for various sites, we are still in need of good in situ photos  
in combination with a small piece of tissue each to confirm species  
ID (tissue of ca. 5 mm3 in small amount of alcohol will do). If you  
like to help either way you can contact me.

Cheers, Christine
