Note Editore

The iconic and beautiful Great Barrier Reef (GBR) Marine Park is home to one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. With contributions from international experts, this timely and fully updated second edition of The Great Barrier Reef describes the animals, plants and other organisms of the reef, as well as the biological, chemical and physical processes that influence them. It contains new chapters on shelf slopes and fisheries and addresses pressing issues such as climate change, ocean acidification, coral bleaching and disease, and invasive species.The Great Barrier Reef is a must-read for the interested reef tourist, student, researcher and environmental manager. While it has an Australian focus, it can equally be used as a reference text for most Indo-Pacific coral reefs. Key Features: Exciting and contemporary account of the issues that face the world’s most complex marine ecosystem. Examines the diversity, physiology, ecology and conservation of coral reefs in one volume. Written by leading authorities on the biodiversity of the GBR as well as its position as an icon for monitoring global warming. Beautifully illustrated.
