Description
No place on Earth can match a coral reef, close up, for the brilliant and abundant wildlife that lives there. Colors of the Sea presents all the mesmerizing beauty of this ancient ecosystem in dramatic full-page photographs and accurate, informative text. In this series you'll encounter the marine behavior that fascinates divers: the symbiotic relationships of cleaning species and predators many times their size; the camouflage tactics of hunters from the lethargic scorpion fish to the nimble hawk fishes; the startling and colorful sea slugs; and much, much more. This rare and exciting look into the world of coral reefs will fascinate and inform every reader.

Coral reefs are massive limestone formations that build up over centuries. Yet they owe their existence to very tiny coral polyps that secrete the hard coral limestone as a by-product of their existence. Behind the scenes are special algae that play a critical role in the formation of coral. Few people are aware of this unusual process,and Coral Reef Builders provides a unique insight into this remarkable process.
