Dear Coral-list,
     I thought many of you might be interested in a recent publication
exploring the mechanisms behind coral resilience to environmental stress.

Barshis, DJ, Stillman, JH, Gates, RD, Toonen, RJ, Smith, LW and C Birkeland
*Molecular Ecology* 19:1705-1720 APR 2010

Here's a link to a nice perspective on the article:
