Atlas of Philippine Coral Reefs
by Porfirio Alino, Evangeline Miclat, Cleto Nanola, Jr, Hily An Roa-Quiaoit, and Reuben Campos, Editors
The Atlas of Philippine Coral Reefs compiles site descriptions of more than fifty reefs around the country. The issues and concerns presented in this volume help in the understanding of the challenges that a developing nation faces in reef protection and, thus, develop in the reader an appreciation of the innovative actions that a community of coral reef researchers and environmental practitioners develop and apply in the field. While a lot has been done and written about coral reef research and conservation in the Philippines, none in the literature presents this much information, at the same time provides a balance between scientific information and insights of popular interest, as this. This is indeed an exemplary testimony of the shared work of the Philippine Coral Reef Information Network partners.
