Endangered Species Act Status Review Reports for Pocillopora meandrina (ID416)

These two reports provide the status review for the Indo-Pacific reef- building coral Pocillopora meandrina in response to a petition to list the species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The two reports are titled "General Status Assessment of Indo-Pacific Reef building Corals" (GSA) and "Pocillopora meandrina Status Review Report" (SRR). The two reports together constitute the status review for this species, upon which the official 12-month finding will be based, the ESA decision document that determines whether the species is proposed for ESA listing, or not warranted for ESA listing.
