We don't usually you to minor changes in the training materials that are online at the AGRRA web site.

For anyone who's already downloaded these slides, please substitute the corrected version of Coral ID-1 which is now posted at:
My thanks to Joerg Wiedenmann for drawing our attention to the following publication:
Oswald, F. et al. 2007. Contributions of hosts and symbionts pigments to the coloration of reef corals. FEBS Journal 274: 1102-1109.
