Coral Reefs of the USA provides a complete overview of the present status of knowledge regarding all coral reef areas within the USA and its territories. It is written by the most experienced authorities in their fields and geographic areas. Stretching from the Caribbean to the western Pacific, the coral reefs of the USA span extensive geographic and biotic diversity, occur in a wide variety of geomorphological settings, and provide a representative cross-section of Holocene reef-building. Complete scholarly reviews are given for the geology, geomorphology, and the biology of reefs encompassing a vast area stretching from the Mariana Islands in the west, Samoa in the south, Hawaii in the north, and the Virgin Islands in the east. This book is not a status report, yet provides up-to-date information about stressors and the biotic responses of the reefs, as well as the geological origins and explanations . The volume is a valuable baseline-reference for all those who are engaged in research, management, or conservations of these coral reefs or to those who simply enjoy being well-informed about one of the most iconic ecosystems of the USA.
