Dear colleagues,

The question of coral immortality is related to the knowledge about their senescence.  Unfortunately, our understanding concerning coral senescence in shallow water habitat is poor.  The data about the ontogeny, generation time and whole life history for the mesophotic zone and deep sea are even less.  One constructive appeal of the current discussion will be to start projects focused on these issues.
