I recently became aware of what appears to be an excellent textbook on
Goldberg, W.M. 2013. The biology of reefs and reef organisms. Univ.
Chigago Press, 401 pp.
Many of you are probably also aware of another excellent text:
Sheppard, Davy and Pilling. 2009. The biology of coral reefs. Oxford
Also, an excellent new book on coral diseases:
Woodley et al. 2016. Diseases of Coral. Wiley, 582 pp.
I was surprised, some of these are not nearly as expensive as I thought
they would be.
I see that there are now quite a few volumes in the Springer series on
Coral Reefs of the World:
Coral reefs in the Anthropocene
Coral Reefs of the United Kingdom Overseas Territories
Coral reefs at the Crossroads
Coral Reefs: an ecosystem in transition
Coral Reefs of the Eastern Tropical Pacific
Coral Reefs of the Gulf
Encyclopedia of Modern Coral Reefs
Coral Reefs of the Great Barrier Reef
Coral Reefs of the USA
Coral Reef Science
Coral Reef Remote Sensing
Red Sea Ecosystem and Fisheries
The Coral Reef Era from Discovery to Decline
Geological Approaches to Coral Reef Ecology
Coral Health and Disease
Gee I wish I had time to read all of these!
