Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This invaluable travel companion for divers, snorkelers, and nature lovers packs a tremendous amount of information into a concise format. The first half of the book explores the 500 million-year history of coral formation, covering such topics as the geography and biology of coral, the symbiotic relationship between coral and certain fish species, and the dynamics between predator and prey housed in the reef. Meticulous scientific drawings and color photographs accompany the highly readable text. The second half of the book is comprised of an illustrated field guide to the various types of coral as well as the most common fish and invertebrates that make their home in the coral reefs of the Indo-Pacific and Caribbean.
