Bright, Thomas J., and Pequegnat, Linda H. (eds)  
Biota of the West Flower Garden Bank
 Picture
Publisher: Gulf Publishing Company, Book Division, 1974 Houston, TX.
ISBN: 0872010589 Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall "For many centuries men have sailed the oceans and enjoyed their riches, but a true understanding of the oceans will result only from getting down below the surface and inspecting the beauty and significance of the variety of living forms there. This study of the Biota of the West Flower Garden Bank of the Gulf of Mexico is just that - an attempt to go below the surface and find reliable information concerning the communities of benthic and benthopelagic organisms. The fauna of the area will be an important consideration for recreational and scientific activities to be undertaken there. Information presented here is a product of research activities at the Flower Garden Coral Reef located 110 nautical miles SSE of Galveston. Diver-scientists conducted ten expeditions from a research ship provided by the Flower Garden Ocean Research Center, a division of the Marine Biomedical Institute of the UInivesity of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. Their search supplied accounts of over 360 species, many of which were previously unreported in the Gulf of Mexico. Photographs and detailed descriptions of the biota are included. Biota of the West Flower Garden Bank meets the needs of a wide audience. Highly specialized language has been avoided wherever possible, and detailed glossaries are provided. The material is intelligible to readers in many scientific disciplines, as well as to interested laymen, sport dives, and commercial fishermen. Understanding the Flower Garden Coral Reef is a key to understanding the biota of the entire Gulf of Mexico, because this particular reef provides an enormous variety of fauna for investigation." ix + 435 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition; shelfwear; binding tight; text pages clean. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; shelfwear.
