Publication  Announcement:

PACIFIC CORAL REEFS by Diane S. Littler & Mark M. Littler. OffShore
Graphics, Inc. Washington, D.C. 2003.  pp. 331. $45.00 US

The purpose of this "Divers' Guide to the Plant Life of South Pacific Coral
Reefs" is to make marine plant identification possible for both the sport
diving community and professional marine scientists who venture into the
fascinating undersea realm of South Pacific reefs. Depicted are the major
species found during more than 2,200 SCUBA dives over a 10-year period
throughout Tahiti, Cook Islands, Samoa, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Papua New
Guinea and the Great Barrier Reef. More than 370 stunning underwater
photographs showcase the major seaweeds. Over 70 additional images depict
'ecological phenomena' in photographic sidebars.

South Pacific Reef Plants features underwater color photographs of each
plant on the right facing pages, with a list of key characters to the left
of each photo. The location and depth of every photograph is given at the
bottom left corner. The descriptions, habitat information, distributions and
notes of interest appear directly across on the left facing page to
facilitate identification. The photographs were selected to emphasize the
characters that enhance visual identification. A specimen can thus be
"picture-keyed" initially, then positively identified by using the
dichotomous keys in conjunction with the key characters.
