The Biology of Reefs and Reef Organisms

by Walter M Goldberg

The Biology of Reefs and Reef Organisms
£26.95 RRP: £38.50 Add to basket


Examines the nature not only of coral reefs but also of sponge reefs, worm reefs, and oyster reefs, explaining the factors that influence their growth, distribution, and structure. A central focus of the book is reef construction, with details of the plants and animals that form the scaffold of the reef system and allow for the attachment and growth of other organisms, including those that function as bafflers, binders, and cementing agents.

Also includes reef ecology, paleontology, and biogeography, all of which serve as background for the problems reefs face today and the challenge of their conservation.
