Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

By first describing the uniqueness, beauty, complexity, and fragility of coral reef biomes, which collectively cover a larger area than that of North America and Eurasia combined, this book captures the attention of the reader. Ensuing chapters address the menace to reefs by industrial development, pollution, tourism, and commercial harvesting. The current magnitude of reef damage is assessed, and the actions necessary to stop their destruction discussed. Presenting many examples to substantiate their point that reef destruction is occurring at a disastrous rate, the authors make an urgent plea for strong conservational methods by governments and private organizations. Excellent photographs and a well-researched text make this book a top resource for lay readers interested in environmental or marine science topics. Highly recommended for general collections.
