I second Gregor Hodgson's comments on how younger reef scientists have no
direct knowledge of how reefs used to be 40 years ago. That is one of the
reasons why we assembled the booklet, Reef Reminiscences. It captures the
memories of a number of older reef scientists concerning the places they
worked in their youth. Yes, we may be wearing rose-colored glasses (or
perhaps rose-colored cataracts), but I think we all tried to describe what
we remembered without exaggerating.
