There is a growing crisis in our oceans: mysterious outbreaks of infectious disease are on the rise. Working on the front lines of ruin, today's coral scientists are struggling to save these important coral reef ecosystems from the imminent threats of rapidly warming, acidifying, and polluted oceans. Shortspine thornyhead and rockfish (Scorpaenidae) distribution in response to substratum, biogenic structures and trawling. I've dealt with anxiety and depression in the past, and though I wasn't triggered, it did leave me sad and disturbed. I appreciate Christian authors who are willing to deal with the sorts of hard topics that Ella does in this book.

He was so sweet and sincere, wanting to do what was best for his little sister even though he made mistakes along the way. This book holds a lot of triggers, but it was kind of nice to see them presented in a more clean way. Two decades provide perspective, of course, and The Coral holds up remarkably well – a testament to the band’s invention. The band’s sojourn into psychedelia and folk rock was refreshing and inventive, compelling and precocious. There is subtlety I expect from retellings of famous stories and Ella just misses the mark entirely.Not a book written by a coral reef biologist, this is a book by a non-scientist about how coral reef scientists cope with the knowledge that our degradation of reef ecosystems around the world is close to terminal. It was the perfect mix of the brokenness of this world with hope for eternity where there will be no more sorrow and pain.

Reading it was sometimes confusing, but in the end, it felt like I was wearing the story like a blanket. Comprising the most biodiverse ecosystems on our planet, oceans are humanity’s life-support system, processing more carbon dioxide than rainforests.I don't know if it was me, but all of the pov switches and back and forth and stuff just confused me and I still don't think I grasped everything the way the author meant even though I see why she did it. The Coral Island, for all its adventure, is greatly occupied with the realism of domestic fiction (the domain of the realist novel); Ballantyne devotes about a third of the book to descriptions of the boys' living arrangements. For instance, although The Coral Island was published a year before Origin of Species (whose ideas were already being circulated and discussed widely), Charles Darwin's 1842 The Structure and Distribution of Coral Reefs was one of the best-known contemporary accounts of the growth of coral. a b c Rennie, Neil (2004), "Ballantyne, Robert Michael (1825–1894)", Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (online ed. Tutored by his mother and sisters, his only formal education was a brief period at Edinburgh Academy in 1835–37.
