Coral Reefs provides a clear review of coral reef biology and ecology based on the work of the author as a young explorer and scientist with the Biosphere Foundation’s ‘Planetary Coral Reef Expedition’.

 

Through mapping and monitoring 41 coral reefs around the world from 1995 to 2008, the book gives us an understanding of their crucial function on Earth and the consequences of allowing their demise. Both threats and solutions are highlighted and each chapter is illustrated with photos taken by Orla during her expedition.

 

This book outlines the significance of the fact that if coral reefs are in trouble, the whole planet is in trouble. At the same times as celebrating their complexity, it describes what currently threatens coral reefs around the world.
