From the reviews:

“Another addition to Springer’s range of mammoth tomes addressing important fields across the sciences, this covers the geology, biotic composition and physical geography of coral reefs around the world though 260 fully referenced entries. … Presented largely from the perspective of earth sciences, this will … prove to be a valuable reference for biogeographers working in these systems.” (Frontiers of Biogeography, Vol. 5 (3), 2013)

“The Encyclopedia of Modern Coral Reefs is one of those exceptional scholarly works that is bound to make a lasting impression on the existing literature. … researchers from other relevant disciplines would undoubtedly find it of use. … This is a remarkable addition to the literature on coral reefs … . a sound investment for libraries which cater for students and researchers of marine science and other related disciplines.” (Anna Franca, Reference Reviews, Vol. 25 (8), 2011)

Endorsements:

My feeling is that this single book is the best compilation on coral reefs ever written, and it will be many years, if ever, before another book like this is published. I for one appreciate having my best references both in book and electronic form, and I appreciate the efforts of Springer to continue to produce important publications in book format. Jim Maragos

The book is truly outstanding! What a magnificent and well-assembled compilation of what clearly represent the best up-to-date summaries of significant, decades-scale bodies of work on global coral reefs, on old and new technologies employed, and on the early grandfathers of reef research. I fully expect that the volume will quickly fit well into the realm of classic literature on reefs, past and present. Barbara Lidz
