Coral reefs are often called "the rainforests of the sea" because of the quantity and diversity of life they support, and because they are highly sensitive and threatened ecosystems.
Building on the success of DK's Rainforest, this unique pictorial celebration of the worlds reefs progresses through an ecological chain that goes from algae, sponges, and mollusks to the thousands of fishes that make their homes there.
This vivid collection of photographs, from underwater photography collective Scubazoo, reveals reefs as they've never been seen before.
Features reefs worldwide, from Southeast Asia to the Red Sea and Hawaii Captions identify plant and animal life and quotes give additional background information Photographic narratives demonstrate how reefs live/die, and how creatures depend on them Published in cooperation with the American Museum of Natural History Sales of this book support the Coral Reef Alliance..
