Coral Reefs: Natures Wonders by Walter and Jean Deas
There are countless reefs throughout the Indo-Pacific region and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is the largest, and most spectacular, coral reef province in the world. Coral Reefs — Nature’s Wonders provides an introduction to the coral reef biology and ecology in a full-colour identification guide to the better-known coral of this region.
This beautiful, heavily illustrated and informative introduction takes readers into the tranquil underwater world of living coral, brilliantly coloured fishes, sponges, algae, cowries and giant clams. It is this combination of marine life that gives the coral reefs their mystique.
