Examines the day-to-day life of the world's coral reefs with photographs of the animals, plants, and organisms that inhabit this underwater world

Firefly Books Ltd
In CORAL SEAS, Roger Steene, portrays microscopic plant and animal life, larger marine animals and corals, with dramatic photos of submerged landscapes as well as surface landscapes surrounding reefs and lagoons.

In this magnificent book, the day-to-day life of the world's coral reefs is played out before our eyes in stunning color. Coral Seas is a glowing testimony to the skill and patience of underwater photographer, Roger Steene. Each of the 340 full-color photographs demonstrates Steene's ability to capture the beauty of the world's coral seas, from incredible close-up shots of tiny animals and plants, to dramatic wide-angle photographs that capture the essence of the underwater world. Twenty-five of the organisms featured in the book are new to science, and their photographs are published here for the first time.

Steene's work not only demonstrates his photographic skill, it illustrates his dedication to the world's coral reef environments. He likens these ecosystems to tropical rainforests but with more species of readily visible wildlife, and urges governments to take steps to preserve coral reefs without unnecessarily restricting public access to them. His love of the reefs becomes obvious through his images.

The result of five years of intensive work in oceans around the world, Coral Seas will appeal to anyone with an interest in the environment, marine science, or simply beautiful photography.
