Dear Colleagues
We  are happy to announce the publication of  the new book
Dubinsky, Z. and *Stambler N.* (Editors). 2011 Coral reefs an ecosystem in
transition. Springer.552p DOI: 10.1007/978-94-007-0114-4_6.


This book covers in one volume materials scattered in hundreds of research
articles, in most cases focusing on specialized aspects of coral biology. In
addition to the latest developments in coral evolution and physiology, it
presents chapters devoted to novel frontiers in coral reef research. These
include the molecular biology of corals and their symbiotic algae, remote
sensing of reef systems, ecology of coral disease spread, effects of various
scenarios of global climate change, ocean acidification effects of
increasing CO2 levels on coral calcification, and damaged coral reef
remediation. Beyond extensive coverage of the above aspects, key issues
regarding the coral organism and the reef ecosystem such as calcification,
reproduction, modeling, algae, reef invertebrates, competition and fish are
re-evaluated in the light of new research and emerging insights. In all
chapters novel theories as well as challenges to established paradigms are
introduced, evaluated and discussed. This volume is indispensible for all
those involved in coral reef teaching, research, management and
