about

This book documents and examines the state of health of coral reefs in the eastern tropical Pacific region.  It touches on the occurrence of coral reefs in the waters of surrounding countries, and it explores their biogeography, biodiversity and condition relative to the El Niño southern oscillation and human impacts.  Additionally contained within is a field that presents information on many of the species presented in the preceding chapters.
