| ||"This is an outstanding and vital piece of work, the culmination of the author's lifetime research on this difficult but fundamentally important genus."|
Brian Rosen - Natural History Museum, London
"One's initial impression of Wallace's work is one of exceptional aesthetic quality. . .the quantity of information provided is remarkable and is obviously the culmination of many years of painstaking research. . .an invaluable resource for anyone working with Staghorn corals or with Scleractinian systematics. A wonderful addition to any library."
S.D. Brooke, Harbor Branch, Oceanographic Institution (CHOICE, May 2000)
"This book, which reflects the lifelong research work of the author, sets a new standard in the study of the Acropora. In marine biology such a work has quite an historical meaning, and in the Aquarium world it will help to place the knowledge of the hobbyists on a more scientifically founded base. This book should not under any circumstance be missing from the bookshelves of reef aquarium enthusiasts, who have a strong interest in staghorn corals."
Daniel Knop (Koralle No. 2, April/May 2000)
“Carden Wallace’s Staghorn Corals of the World is a work of virtuosity. … The reader will find detailed information on 113 species of Acropora, including descriptions of five new species.”
