Nature volume 128, pages 206207 (08 August 1931) | Download Citation



ALL interested in the many fascinating problems of the formation and maintenance of coral reefs, be they marine biologists, geographers, or geologists, have reason to be grateful to the president of the Lowell Institute of Boston. It was as a result of his invitation that Prof. J. Stanley Gardiner delivered a course of lectures at Boston in 1930, and that now we have a volume embodying these lectures, which represent the fruits of thirty-five years' interest in coral reef problems and five years of personal observation on the reefs of the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
