The major reference used by the author for this section of the website is The World Atlas of Coral Reefs, by Mark D. Spalding, Corinna Ravilious and Edmund P. Green, published by the University of California Press . This outstanding atlas is highly recommended as the primary resource for more detailed information about coral reefs worldwide. For more complete and in-depth coverage of the topics presented in this webpage, I recommend highly purchasing a copy of this beautifully illustrated book.
