This authoritive project by Hoeksema & Van Ofwegen of the National Museum of Natural History Naturalis (Leiden, The Netherlands) deals with animals that are popularly known as stony corals, soft corals, gorgonians, sea pens, black corals, fire corals, and lace corals. This CD-ROM provides 2500 illustrations and a computer-assisted identification key to the approximately 170 (sub) genera, a brief diagnosis for each genus, and interactive distribution maps for the stony corals indicating the total range for each genus in the Indo-Pacific. The people who are targeted as potential users of this CD-ROM are coral reef scientists, coral reef conservationists, snorkellers and SCUBA-divers, aquarium hobbyists, marine park rangers and government officials responsible for inspecting corals in the control of international trade in endangered species.
