TNC publishes book on coral reefs on the Panamanian Pacific by Guzman and Breedy

The Nature Conservancy thanked Guzmán and his team for the countless hours of diving which have made it possible for everyone to now have high quality information, beautifully illustrated and explained

The Nature Conservancy has published a 40-page book - page book Distribución de la diversidad y estado de conservación de los arrecifes coralinos y comunidades coralinas del Pacífico Occidental de Panamá (Punta Mala - Punta Burica) [Diversity distribution and conservation conditions of coral reefs and coral communities of the Panamanian West Pacific (Mala Point-Burica Point)] (2008) published by The Nature Conservancy in May 2009.

“The Republic of Panama, with its 2,988.3 kilometers of coast, hosts, within the sea, the same or more diversity than in its 75,517 km2. of land. This underwater biodiversity, the one we do not see, is abundant, fragile and unique... This book is the result of intense collaborative work, including hard and applied science for the management of our marine diversity. Four years of scientific data collected on coral reefs and coral communities in the Panamanian west Pacific (2004-2008) served as the basis for this publication.”

The Nature Conservancy thanked Guzmán and his team for the countless hours of diving which have made it possible for everyone to now have high quality information, beautifully illustrated and explained. The book will be donated, and its distribution will be coordinated by STRI.
