Hello colleagues,

In the nearest future I am hoping to start the project on coral  
connectivity in Micronesia (Palau, FSM, Marshalls, Marianas), using  
Acropora millepora and A. hyacinthus, with 20+ microsatellite loci  
for each. One problem remains: to address the degree of genetic input  
from outside my main study area, I need samples of these two species  
from  Indonesia and Gilbert Islands. I was lucky to find people  
willing to collaborate on the Indonesian side of the region, but  
Gilberts are still a problem. Perhaps some of you have samples from  
there, or plan to go there for fieldwork within the next couple of
