Titlyanov / Titlyanova / Li Coral Reef Marine Plants of Hainan Island

Coral Reef Marine Plants of Hainan Island summarizes the literature on the role and use of marine plants in coral reef ecosystems, especially in China and countries in the Asia-Pacific Region. The first chapter of the book focuses on the description of coral reef ecosystems, their architecture, and status of Hainan coral reefs. The second chapter focuses on common knowledge surrounding marine plants, such as their classification, identifying characteristics of different phyla, morphology, reproduction, life forms, main algal communities on coral reefs, distribution of algae on coral reefs and their roles, and the use of seaweeds in cookery, medicine, industry, and agriculture.

The third chapter on the seaweed flora of Hainan Island contains species composition of the marine benthic flora, the complete list of marine plants found by researchers from all studies, and historical changes in the flora and seasonal changes. The final chapter shows how to identify common species of marine plants on coral reefs of Hainan Island.

This excellent work will help readers identify relevant plants, also teaching them how to use plant resources to assess endangered states and create conservation strategies.

Titlyanov, Antoninovich Eduard
Dr. Titlyanov graduated from Far Eastern State University at Vladivostok in 1963 and got bachelor degree, and got master degree from Leningrad State University on specialty plant biochemistry in 1966. He is the head of the Laboratory of the Physiology of Marine Autotrophic Organisms, A.V. Zhirmunsky Institute of Marine Biology, Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. His research areas include macroalgae and coral distribution dependent upon light and other environmental factors, the autotrophic and heterotrophic functions of the various reef-building coral species and range of their habitat. During last 15 years Prof. Titlyanov E. A. carried out the investigations in the field of adaptation of marine algae, both multicellular and unicellular (zooxanthellae), to quantity and spectral composition of light. He published more than 50 papers and 4 books.

Titlyanova, Viktorovna Tamara
She is scientific researcher of the Laboratory of the Physiology of Marine Autotrophic Organisms, A.V. Zhirmunsky Institute of Marine Biology, Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. And she is interested in Taxonomy of marine algae and seaweeds of the tropical and subtropical zones.

Huang, Hui
She is currently leading a research group on coral reef ecology and coral taxonomy with ten faculty members and six graduate students.
Her recent research work focuses on (1) coral taxonomy; (2)status and species distribution of coral reef and coral communities in China's coastal and oceanic waters, and in particular the taxonomy of stony corals and gorgonian; (3) health status and evaluation on coral reef and coral communities in China, especially the degradation process under local sediment/eutrophication stress and global change ambience; (4) conservation and management strategy of coral reef ecosystem and marine biodiversity.
