First Paragraph

Walter Goldberg dedicates his new reference book, The Biology of Reefs and Reef Organisms, to “the condition of the reefs the way I remember them, with the hope that they might be that way again someday.” He follows this simple, emotional, dedicatory plea with thorough descriptions of reef formation and colorful reef inhabitants, and ends with a note of hope.
