All volumes include vivid descriptions of the unique plants and animals found within a given ecosystem. If the health of that ecosystem is threatened, the threats are also discussed. "Life in a Coral Reef explores the active and vibrant world of coral reef habitats, one of the most complex ecosystems on Earth. Three chapters describe different types of corals and explain how reefs are formed, illustrate a variety of coral reef plant and animal life, and discuss a number of environmental issues that threaten coral reefs and the conservation efforts under way to save them.
