Abstract: An intensive research effort was organized as a 1-week workshop
with the specific goal of resolving difficult questions concerning whether or not
zooxanthellae are nutrient limited within host corals. Over 30 scientists participated.
Participants applied various techniques to the same set of corals, which
had been preincubated under different nutrient regimes for various time
periods. Interdisciplinary research projects of this scale and intensity have
rarely been attempted by coral reef biologists, yet the evidence developed during
the workshop demonstrates the usefulness of this approach. This was a true
"workshop" rather than a "talk-shop" and produced important research results
while allowing participants to compare research methods and discuss various
theories and research philosophies. Important new data were developed.
Apparent contradictions were resolved through development of models that
consider the dynamics of carbon fixation relative to nutrient availability.
