I find your paper and videos to be fascinating!
You mention that this is your "latest" paper - where can I read more about
your research?

With time to kill during my Covid sequestration I?ve been attending lots of
webinars and watching online lectures by various experts from all over. In
one of the lectures a professor of marine ecologist (not a coral reef
specialist) mentioned that the sea fan disease, aspergillosis, was not
caused by the soil fungus Aspergillus sydowii, but by a related fungus. This
was the first I?ve heard such a claim, and was wondering if any coral
disease specialist here on the list might comment on the accuracy of that
statement, and if it?s true what pathogen is responsible?

I'm sorry if this is a bit off-topic, but I wanted to share with you our
latest paper showing that octopuses punch fishes during collaborative
hunting in coral reefs. This is the first of our ongoing project on these
multi-species groups, and both pdf and relevant materials can be found
freely available here:


The videos are the heart of the paper, so I highly recommend checking them
out on the Supplemental Information menu.

All the best,
