site is now designed for the Version 4 and higher browsers at
800 X 600 screen size. It includes dynamic HTML and Macromedia
Flash animation. Pass your mouse over page elements to see what surprises
lie hidden from view.
website is a general introduction to the biology of coralline algae, and
includes pointers to the latest family, subfamily and generic delimitations.
Graphics and interactivity are now included where they improve clarity.
In developing graphics, I have tried to reduce the number of images from
publications of fellow 'corallinologists', but some are inevitiable. If
you see an image from one of your publications, and you don't want it to
appear here, please let me know and
I will take it out.
