The Coral Compactus: Western Australia Hard Coral Genus Identification Guide Version 2
MetadataShow full item record
The intention of this identification guide is to provide coral identification material to support research, monitoring and biodiversity conservation in Western Australia.
This guide provides an introduction to the key characteristics required to identify shallow-water, reef building corals to the genus level based on the revised scleractinian coral classification system as of May 2018. This manual should be used in conjunction with other taxonomic sources (see reference list) and with reference to the World Register of Marine Species and the World List of Scleractinia.
