The tropical UK Territories have extensive coral reefs. Huge parts of these areas are exceptionally rich, productive and diverse. Their marine biodiversity exceeds that of the UK itself, and several are already, or are planned to be, strictly protected. Some of these areas serve as reference sites for many other countries with damaged reefs and they are oases of tropical marine biodiversity in a fast-degrading world. This book reviews all of the UK reefs, from those scarcely known to those where substantial research has already been performed.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Coral Reefs of the United Kingdom Overseas Territories gives a broad overview of the eight major UK overseas territories ... . A beautiful book which I can recommend to teachers, interested students and libraries." (Branko Velimirov, Marine Ecology, Vol. 35, 2014)

"Chapter narratives are clear and comprehensible to nonspecialists. Each of the 22 chapters contains extensive, relevant literature citations. Figure quality, table organization, and editorial rigor are good throughout. Although the topic appears narrow, this work is a good source of information on coral biology for both specialists and nonspecialists. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (S. R. Fegley, Choice, Vol. 51 (3), November, 2013)
