Review "This reasonably priced atlas explores one of nature's most diverse and beautiful ecosystems--coral reefs. Its coverage is vast, providing an area-by-area summary of coral-reef systems in all geographic locations and countries. Each section includes an overview of the area, the locations of the reefs, data on size, and the specific pressures and hazards to those reefs. Background information of coral-reef evolution, environmental issues, and reef-mapping techniques is also provided. Scientists, researchers, and teachers will appreciate the currency and comprehensiveness; lay readers and students will find the plethora of superior maps and lavish color photographs of the many reef species inviting."--"The Best of the Best Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2003
