About The Author

Coral reefs represent the most spectacular and diverse marine ecosystem on the planet as well as a critical source of income for millions of people. However, the combined effects of human activity have led to a rapid decline in the health of reefs worldwide, with many now facing destruction. Their worldwide deterioration and over-exploitation has continued and even accelerated in many areas since the first edition’s publication in 2009. At the same time, there has been a near doubling in the number of scientific papers written in this short time about coral reef biology and the ability to acclimate to ocean warming and acidification. This new Second Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, incorporating the significant increase in
knowledge gained over the last decade whilst retaining the book’s focus as a concise and affordable overview of the field.

The Biology of Coral Reefs 2nd Edition (PDF) provides an integrated overview of the physiology, ecology, function, and behaviour of coral reef organisms. Every chapter is enriched with a selection of ‘boxes’ on specific aspects written by internationally recognised experts. As with other books in the Biology of Habitats Series, this book emphasizes the organisms that dominate this marine environment, although pollution, climate change, conservation, and experimental aspects are also included. Indeed, particular emphasis is placed on conservation and management due to the habitat’s critically endangered status. A global range of examples is employed which gives the book international relevance.
