Checklist of the shallow-water corals of Trinidad

Abstract


Although there is an extensive series of publications on the corals of the Caribbean area, virtually nothing has been published on the corals of Trinidad. This is due partly to the fact that it has only been comparatively recently that marine biologists in Trinidad have addressed their attention to this group and to coral communities in the coastal waters of Trinidad. During the past five years, with the development of a marine biology programme in the Department of Biological Sciences, University of the West Indies, it has been possible to assemble representative collections of corals. This paper presents a checklist of those species which have so far been found.
