Huisman, John M., Isabella A. Abbott, and Celia M. Smith. 2007. Hawaiian Reef Plants. A publication of the University of Hawaii Sea Grant College Program. Report no. UNIHI-SEAGRANT-BA-03-02. ISBN: 1-929054-04-1.
Hawaiian Reef Plants is an easy-to-use yet comprehensive guide on nearly all species of marine plants present in Hawaii accompanied by stunning photographs and illustrations. The book is valuable to experts and novices alike, and is a must-read for everyone interested in marine plants and the complex ecosystems in which they live. This volume concentrates on a significant part of Hawaiian marine life--marine plants, or seaweeds. Hawaiian culture was and is heavily dependent upon the sea, and reef algae or "limu" as it is known in Hawaii, as a prominent part of the culture. The book is written by John M. Huisman, Isabella A. Abbott and Celia M. Smith, three of the world's leading botanists, and is in full color. Its 264 pages are packed with stunning photographs of the Hawaiian marine flora, plus keys, descriptions, introductory chapters, sections on Hawaiian use of seaweeds and much more.
