The book treats many aspects of reefs, from the main reef builders, the abiotic environment, reef microbiology and the world of coral reef fishes. Most figures are black/white, but the book also contains some color plates. It goes into a good amount of detail, and covers some very recent scientific studies, but at the same time is written in a readable style. I found this book great as an introduction to the subject and a quick guide for remembering the basics. So is very useful for students of these ecosystems and for amateurs. Reading the book gives you the knowledge to understand more specific documents like papers later.

The publication examines the coral reefs of the New Guinea region and waters of the Great Barrier Reef province. Topics include climate, seasonal variations in temperature and salinity, and water masses in the Coral Sea and their effect on the Great Barrier Reef

The publication examines the coral reefs of the New Guinea region and waters of the Great Barrier Reef province. Topics include climate, seasonal variations in temperature and salinity, and water masses in the Coral Sea and their effect on the Great Barrier Reef. The book also ponders on the geomorphology of Eastern Queensland in relation to the Great Barrier Reef; structural and tectonic factors influencing the development of coral reefs off Northeastern Queensland; and sediments of the Great Barrier Reef province.

A Coral Reef Resilience Index (CRRI) was developed with a GIS-coupled decision-making tool applicable for Caribbean. Timely information is critical for coral reef managers and decision-makers to implement sustainable management measures. A Coral Reef Resilience Index (CRRI) was developed with a GIS-coupled decision-making tool applicable for Caribbean coral reef ecosystems.

Coral reefs represent the most spectacular and diverse marine ecosystem on the planet as well as a critical source .

Coral reefs represent the most spectacular and diverse marine ecosystem on the planet as well as a critical source of protein and income for many millions of people. Ecologically they are as complex as they are diverse and colourful. As with other books in the Biology of Habitats Series, the emphasis in this book is on the organisms that dominate this marine environment, although pollution, conservation, climate change and experimental aspects are also included. Indeed, particular emphasis is placed on conservation and management due to the habitat’s critically endangered status. A global range of examples is employed which gives the book international relevance.

This course will introduce key aspects of both the biology of reef-building corals and the ecology of tropical coral reefs. Class will typically begin with an introductory lecture to provide a foundation and context for the discussion

This course will introduce key aspects of both the biology of reef-building corals and the ecology of tropical coral reefs. Classes will include both physiological and ecological components. The goals are to examine the adaptations of corals to reef environments, the natural and environmental processes that affect coral physiology and reef structure and function. Class will typically begin with an introductory lecture to provide a foundation and context for the discussion. A student will then be selected (typically randomly but ensuring everyone gets a chance) to lead the discussion.

The Structure and Distribution of Coral Reefs, Being the first part of the geology of the voyage of the Beagle, under the command of Capt. during the years 1832 to 1836, was published in 1842 as Charles Darwin's first monograph, and set out his theory of the formation of coral reefs and atolls
