A photo collection of the hard, soft and black corals observed in the near-shore waters of the Hawaiian islands.

Corals of Hawai'i: A Field Guide to the Hard, Black, and Soft Corals of Hawai'i and the Northwest Hawaiian Islands, including Midway. Honolulu. Mutual Publishing. 2005. Coral disease identification is a growing field of study.
