Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“George Warner has tapped his long experience as a Caribbean marine scientist to create an accessible, beautifully illustrated, and informative guide to Caribbean corals and coral reefs, which should be in the dive bag of every novice snorkeler and diver.”—John Ogden, University of Miami

“A very nice, well-written overview of the diversity, ecology, and conservation of corals in the Caribbean. Aimed at laymen, it is lucidly written and provides a well-rounded, balanced, and up-to-date overview.”—Gustav Paulay, Florida Museum of Natural History

With their stunning beauty and biodiversity, the coral reefs of Florida and the Caribbean are part playground and part research lab for the thousands of tourists, divers, and marine scientists who visit them each year. Documenting the wide array of corals that live in the warm waters of the Caribbean, George Warner’s Corals of Florida and the Caribbean provides an easy-to-use (and carry) guidebook that is both scientific and reader friendly.

Beyond detailing the varieties of corals found in the Caribbean, Corals of Florida and the Caribbean also outlines the biology of corals, from the way they grow to their reproductive habits, while warning of major threats to the reefs, such as hurricanes, pollution, and global warming. With more than 150 color photos and detailed species descriptions, Warner’s guide makes identifying and learning about corals entertaining and hassle free.

About the Author

George Warner, retired marine biologist from the University of Reading, has nearly fifty years’ experience with Caribbean reefs. He has served as the director of the Centre for Marine Sciences at the University of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica, and is the author of Diving and Marine Biology and The Biology of Crabs.
