From the reviews:"Coral Reefs of the Gulf provides an important baseline on reef geomorphology and ecosystems in an area under pressure from various developments (oil, gas and resorts). ... this book is an excellent ambassador for monitoring and protecting these important natural ecosystems." (M. James C. Crabbe, The Biologist, Vol. 59 (5), December, 2012)
