Dea list members!

I would like to draw your attention to a paper which we have recently published on the 
development of a (cheap) apparatus for the determination of buoyant weight of entire corals 
in the field (under water). It is more or less a combination of the techniques of Bak, Jokiel 
and Davies. It may be useful for all those people studying environmental effects on coral 
growth/calcification rates, etc.

You can find the paper here:
