Coral Reefs: An Ecosystem in Transition by Robert H. Richmond, Eric Wolanski (auth.), Zvy Dubinsky,

By Robert H. Richmond, Eric Wolanski (auth.), Zvy Dubinsky, Noga Stambler (eds.)

This e-book covers in a single quantity fabrics scattered in thousands of study articles, regularly concentrating on really expert elements of coral biology. as well as the newest advancements in coral evolution and body structure, it offers chapters dedicated to novel frontiers in coral reef study. those comprise the molecular biology of corals and their symbiotic algae, distant sensing of reef structures, ecology of coral illness unfold, results of varied eventualities of world weather swap, ocean acidification results of accelerating CO2 degrees on coral calcification, and broken coral reef remediation. past wide assurance of the above points, key matters concerning the coral organism and the reef environment corresponding to calcification, replica, modeling, algae, reef invertebrates, pageant and fish are re-evaluated within the gentle of latest examine and rising insights. In all chapters novel theories in addition to demanding situations to demonstrated paradigms are brought, evaluated and mentioned. This quantity is indispensible for all these inquisitive about coral reef administration and conservation.
