More About the Author

William (Bill) Alevizon (Ph.D.) is a professional marine biologist and educator specializing in the ecology of coral reef ecosystems.

Bill grew up in the 60's on the beaches of southern California, as an avid surfer and scuba diver. After completing a hitch in the Navy (ours), and graduate school at the Univ. of California, he relocated to Florida where for many years he taught undergraduate and graduate courses in marine biology at the Florida Institute of Technology (Melbourne). He has also served on the faculties of a number of other academic institutions, including the University of California at Berkeley and (currently) the College of Charleston (South Carolina).

Along with teaching and basic research, Dr. Alevizon has also been engaged as a consultant on reef ecology and Marine Protected Area (MPA) planning efforts in The Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos, Antigua, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Malaysia. Over the course of his career, he has written numerous scientific papers, technical reports, and a number of popular magazine articles and books on coral reefs and marine life.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book will provide a basic scientific framework for tropical divers who want to be more than just diving tourists. It covers the different reef zones and the interaction between them, provides an overview of the different animal families, explains the food chain and the interaction between plant and animal life, and describes the differences in feeding behavior between grazers, bottom feeders, nighttime hunters, and daytime hunters. All in a compact, clear format that can be easily polished off in a 4 hour plane ride. My only criticism is that this book, like most of the Pisces guides, is no more substantial than an issue of a good magazine.

Format: Paperback
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.

This book is an introduction to, not a comprehensive study of tropical reef ecosystems. It is perfect for someone who wants to converse intelligently about coral reef ecosystems after only a few hours of reading. It is well written and entertaining. I recommend it highly.
