For those who may be interested, we just recently had a new paper published that has important implications for understanding the ecology of sponges on Caribbean reefs:

Pawlik, J.R., Loh, T.-L., McMurray, S.E., and Finelli, C.M.  2013.  Sponge communities on Caribbean coral reefs are structured by factors that are top-down, not bottom-up. PLoS One 8(5): e62573. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0062573.

The paper is open access, and you can find a link to it at the PDF website below.
