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.

I ordered the Kindle edition while on vacation in Cozumel (partly a dive trip); it was perfect. I wanted more information than how to identify the fish, and this fit the bill, explaining the reef structure and how it functions as an ecosystem in the tropical environment.

There are occasional misprints or errors (of fish becomes offish in several places...) but nothing that distracts from the reading.

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.
