Caribbean Coral Reefs

This is an introductory guide to the structure, marine life, and ecology of Caribbean coral reefs, written for a general audience by a professional marine biologist and educator.

Here's a delightful guide for anyone who loves the beauty and wonder of coral reefs and the marine life they support. Packed with color photos throughout, it simply and clearly describes the fascinating interplay - the ecology - of creatures, natural forces, and biological processes that make coral reefs so fascinating to behold. 

Focusing on coral reefs of the Caribbean, this enlightening and entertaining book goes beyond the who's and what's of these marvelous marine environments. It reveals the why's and how's of the complex roles, behaviors, and interrelationships of the creatures that inhabit coral reefs.
This Ebook is a re-titled digital version of the out-of-print "Pisces Guide to Caribbean Reef Ecology" (ISBN-1559920777; Gulf Publishing, Houston;Lonely Planet) which sold over 10,000 copies, and was very well received (see Reviews, below). All original text and photographs from the hardcopy edition are retained in this Ebook.

 
Excerpt
Coral reefs are, without question, among the most beautiful and colorful ecosystems on our planet, harboring an abundance and variety of life that far surpasses anything else the sea has to offer. At far flung outposts around the globe, coral reefs rise from the sea floor to form living rocky oases - lush, complex ecosystems set amidst vast expanses of the comparative biological deserts that are the open waters of tropical seas. For the sport diver/snorkeler, there are no better places to explore, or to observe marine life, than these colorful undersea gardens.

Professional Reviews

Introduction To Caribbean Coral Reefs
“This is a great condensed version of reef fish behavior. It is
exceptionally well organized and easy to understand. I find it useful in
guiding at the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, in Sarasota, FL. I
am also a diver and appreciate knowing about the creatures I see on the
reef. It makes the dives much more interesting and meaningful.” Joe
Mathis, Bradendon, FL.


Introduction To Caribbean Coral Reefs
Meant for all, (this book) not only makes enjoyable reading, but also leads to a greater understanding of the underwater world and why it is worth preserving. Throughout the text, illustrations, and photographs one can feel the greatness and beauty of coral reefs, and also learn a great deal about the most conspicuous fishes of the region. Vicente Santiago-Fandino PhD, Caribbean Environmental Program, United Nations Environmental program, Kingston, Jamaica
