Contents Notes
"This manual discusses the 14 species of scleractinian corals known from the northeastern United States coast from Virginia to Nova Scotia. Following a brief introduction to the general biology and morphology of Scleractinia, an illustrated dichotomous key and two tabular keys are given for these species. An annotated systematic list includes complete geographic and bathymetric ranges, references to pertinent literature, and, for some species, ecological and taxonomic notes. Zoographic affiliates of the fauna are briefly discussed. A selected bibliography is provided."--p.1.
