This profile of the coral reef community of south Florida is one in a series of community profiles that treat coastal and marine habitats important to humans. Coral reefs are highly productive habitats which provide living space and protection from predation for large populations of invertebrates and fishes, many of which have commercial value. Coral reefs also provide an important economic benefit by attracting tourists to south Florida. The information in the report can give a basic understanding of the coral reef community and its role in the regional ecosystem of south Florida. The primary geographic area covered lies seaward of the coast from Miami south and west to the Dry Tortugas. References are provided for those seeking indepth treatment of a specific facet of coral reef ecology.
