About this book

This book documents and examines the state of health of coral reefs in the eastern tropical Pacific region.  It touches on the occurrence of coral reefs in the waters of surrounding countries, and it explores their biogeography, biodiversity and condition relative to the El Niño southern oscillation and human impacts.  Additionally contained within is a field that presents information on many of the species presented in the preceding chapters.

Reviews

“Each chapter includes a short abstract, chapter contents (with tables and illustrations–many in color), a short summary, and a bibliography. … The book is written for the advanced graduate student or researcher, but many of the chapters are suitable for the general reader. … Summing Up: Recommended. All readers, but particularly for graduate students, researchers, and faculty.” (L. T. Spencer, Choice, Vol. 54 (8), April, 2017)
