This is the 4th Revised Edition 2013.
Today the coral reefs of South East Asia harbor the greatest species diversity of all oceans.
This is true not only for fishes, but also for invertebrates, because the species from the coral world radiated from the triangle of the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia.
20,000 islands and innumerable coral reefs are located in that region where still many new species are discovered.
This book focuses on the coastal fauna, which most divers and snorkellers see first.
The author made his first dives in tropical waters around Indonesia 35 years ago.
With over 1,200 color photos, this book is a dream for the divers and hobbyists alike. 321 pages, hardcover.
