.........

"This is an invitation to see the beautiful and bizarre creatures of coral reefs through the lenses of underwater photographers Drs. Manfred and Claudia Hochleithner. Over one hundred of their tens of thousands of underwater photographs are on the pages that follow for the enjoyment, entertainment and education of both the ordinary viewer who has yet to venture into this underwater realm and the SCUBA diver who has.

The deepest oceans and darkest jungles are home to many unusual organisms and the same is true of our coral reefs, with the distinct difference that our reef organisms are brilliantly colored. Note as you view the images that many organisms use color and structure to hide on their host organisms. The more complex a community becomes, the more complex the symbiotic relationships among the organisms become. It is easy to understand how geographic isolation such as the Galapagos and Hawaiian sea mounts breed endemism, yet there are many endemic species on the reefs within the coral triangle. Many of these seldomseen critters have evolved nontraditional appearances that can fool the naïve and educated alike. Some of these images positively defy description!"
Prof. Mel Cundiff
