This book is a fantastic photographic guide to the underwater world of the South Pacific. Over 750 stunning color photos display the fascinating world of the Soft Coral Capital and its inhabiting creatures, photographed in their natural environment, as never seen before. This book is not a field guide with listings or descriptions of all the species. The intention of the author is to give some impression from down there and make people aware of the breathtaking beauty of the coral reef and its underwater life. It is also an incitation in protecting such wild beauty! Nevertheless, most of the animals in this book have been correctly identified by fellow divers and scientists. 320 pages.
