Media reviews
E. Weil ...For all those interested in coral reef research, management and/or conservation in Latin America, this book is an invaluable source. Researchers, students and government employees involved in coral reef research, conservation and management will benefit because Latin American Coral Reefs provides most of the information for comparisons within and between reefs of each country, between countries within regions and across regions. Caribbean Marine Science E.H. Williams ...this volume is a must for the bookshelf of every scientist working with these reefs just for its convenience and utility. Caribbean Journal of Science C. Bastidas ...I enjoyed reading this book and consider it of relevance for reef scientists, students, managers and the general public interested in coral reefs, diving and natural history. Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology
