Dear Rebecca, Bravo! Finally a field oriented nutrient study with 
meaningful results. This kind of study has been a long time coming. It 
is interesting that the study was supported by the National Science 
Foundation and not by local entities that might have feared results 
could impact local economies. Congratulations! I look forward to seeing 
more such studies in the future. There is still disease on isolated 
reefs in the Caribbean far from population centers that beg for similar 
studies. Gene
