Reef Life: Natural History & Behaviors of Marine Fishes & Invertebrates
By Denise Nielsen Tackett, Larry Tackett
Hardcover, 224 pages.
From the fantastic (tiny fish that live within the anal cavity of sea cucumbers) to the astonishingly beautiful (rare corals and other invertebrates in a kaleidoscope of colors), the animals of the coral reef almost never fail to elicit a "Wow!" from those fortunate enough to see them alive and at close range.
Based on more than a decade of painstaking, close-up observations and brilliant underwater photography, Reef Life offers an unforgettably illustrated, clearly explained introduction to the biology and organisms of the coral reef. Technical advisers to this project include several leading marine biologists, ichthyologists, zoologists and reef aquarists.
