About this book

Spectacularly illustrated, this excellent book provides an insight into the natural history and ecology of coral reefs, with much fascinating detail included on fishes, molluscs and other creatures which have found a niche in these extraordinary ecosystems. The authors interweave their text with descriptions of threats and problems to coral reef life, and demonstrate an understanding of the importance of reefs to many indigenous peoples. They recognise that plans to save reefs must rely for success on these peoples, who have always depended on the plentiful harvest that undamaged reefs can provide.
