Dear Coral Listers,

for my PhD thesis I am trying to find data on reproduction of Acropora 
formosa and at best for the Western Indian Ocean - which might be nearly 

After an intensive internet search (including ReefBase, Web of Science) 
I did not find any specific numbers on reproductive output (in terms of 
eggs/sperm) in relation to colony size/volume.

For other species I am interested in (Pocillopora damicornis, Porites 
lutea and Porites lobota) I already found good data, but there seems to 
be nothing around for Acropora formosa.

I hope that anyone can give me some advise where I can find out some more..
