Other eBooks by William Gray

Coral reefs and islands contain some of the most colourful, beautiful and diverse species on earth, and this book – written for the concerned non-specialist – studies their delicate ecological balance and shows the rich variety of their natural life above and below the waves. Originally published in 1993 and highly commended in the Conservation Book Prize, this highly readable natural history account is divided into five chapters exploring the formation of coral reefs and islands, their colonisation, life on a coral reef, the intertidal worlds of mangrove swamps and coral sand beaches, the evolution of endemic species on remote islands and, finally, the importance of coral reefs and islands, the threats facing them and how they can be protected.
