Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book reflects competent scholarship and will be useful as supplemental reading for courses on conservation in the marine environment. Highly recommended." Choice

"This richly detailed and meticulously researched work is w wonderful account of what is probably one of the most undervalued aspects of the GBR (Great Barrier Reef)-its scientific heritage. I greatly enjoyed this book and enthusiastically recommend it to anyone with an interest in the history of science, and particularly coral reef science, in Australia." Pacific Affairs, Simon Foale, The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia
