Coral Reefs of the Gulf: Adaptation to Climatic Extremes is a complete review and reference for scientists, engineers and students concerned with the geology, biology or engineering aspects of coral reefs in the Middle East. It provides for the first time a complete review of both the geology and biology of all extant coral areas in the Gulf, the water body between Iran and the Arabian Peninsula. In summer, this area is the hottest sea with abundant coral growth on earth and already today exhibits a temperature that is predicted to occur across the topical ocean in 2100. Thus, by studying the Gulf today, much can be learned about tomorrow’s world and the capability of coral reefs to adapt to climatic extremes. This volume provides the most authoritative and up-to-date review of the coral reefs in the Gulf. It can be used as a volume of general reference or as a textbook treating recent coral reefs. Written by local and international experts, the text is richly illustrated and will remain a standard reference for the region for decades to come. Contributions stretch from climatology through geology, biology, ecological modelling and fisheries science to practical conservation aspects. The book is useful for the technical expert and casual reader alike.

This book looks at Florida's ocean as a habitat, a community of elaborate mini-creatures swimming next to bulky saltwater giants. Drifting alongside these living creatures are inanimate objects--bottles, nurdles, rafts, toys and tar blobs--lost or tossed from cargo ships. They float in the Sargasso Sea or flow with the Gulf Stream, sometimes drifting to Florida's east coast to become part of the sea wrack--the flotsam and jetsam that we find when strolling on the shore.

Just one hundred and ten miles south of the Texas-Louisiana border, beneath the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, lie two coral reefs, together called the Flower Garden Banks. This coral community, the northernmost reef system in the United States and a national marine sanctuary, is home to hundreds of kinds of fish and other tropical sea life. Manta rays and turtles visit regularly, as do whale sharks and schools of hammerhead sharks. Other wonders include the annual mass coral spawns and a briny depression called Gollum Lake. Nearby are two other reefs. Stetson Bank, its top spotted with hard corals, mollusks, and sponges, is known for its diversity--from black sea hares to golden smooth trunkfish. At Geyer Bank, thousands of butterfly fish dominate a huge population of tropical fish whose density rivals that of the coral reefs in the South Pacific. Protruding from the flat, muddy continental shelf, these and thirty other natural reefs support an exceptional amount and variety of sea life in Texas waters. They sit amid hundreds of oil and gas platforms, which create their own special reef ecosystems. These reefs, equal in their profusion of life and color to the storied reefs of Florida and Hawaii, have not been widely known to Texans outside of a small group of scientists and divers. With extraordinary photographs and a knowledgeable first-person narrative, author Jesse Cancelmo instills an appreciation for the beauty and fragility of one of the state's least-known natural environments. Texas Coral Reefs will inspire adventurers--both the underwater and armchair varieties--to enjoy these spectacular but little-known sites that lie so close to home.

Proceedings of the Hawai'i Coral Reef Monitoring Workshop held June 9-11, 1998 in Honolulu, Hawai'i. The workshop succeeded in establishing a framework for a coral reef monitoring program for Hawai'i and enlisting the support of all key local residents and many of the top international scientists involved with coral reef monitoring. The approach used for the Hawai'i workshop may be useful for other regions desiring to organize their coral reef monitoring programs. In Hawai'i the workshop has already stimulated a greater degree of cooperation and teamwork in promoting better management of reefs, including the development of the Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (CRAMP), the Hawaii State of the Reefs Report (Clark and Gulko 1998), and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service sponsored Marine Ecosystems Geographic Information System proposal (MEGIS), and Hawaii'i representation on the U.S. Coral Reef Task Force. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service protects many coral reefs throughout Hawai'i and other U.S. areas in the insular Pacific as part of its National Wildlife Refuge system, and plans to adopt the protocols recommended at the workshop for establishing long-range monitoring programs for coral reefs in these refuges.
