Dear Coral-listers,

I’m happy to share our first paper on corals and microplastics which is 
now officially published in Environmental Pollution. We show that also 
major hermatypic corals (/Acropora /spp., /Pocillopora /spp. and 
/Porites /spp.) interact with microplastics and respond with feeding but 
also cleaning mechanisms.

All the best,
