NameBest, W.G., G. Faure & M. Pichon (1980). Contribution to the knowledge of the stony corals from the Seychelles and Eastern Africa. Rev. Zool. Afr. 94,3: 600 - 627.
Type Publication
AbstractDuring several expeditions to the Seychelles, Mozambique and South-East Africa (1966, 1969, 1972) organized by the Musee Royal de l'Afrique Centrale at Tervuren and the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, a large collection of stony corals was made. A short explanation on the problem of the identification of Scleractinian corals and the level we have reached at the present time is given. A historical retrospect on previous work carried out in this area is summarized and a comparison with Pacific coral reef studies is made. Finally a list of the species collected is given with some taxonomical, ecological or geographical data whenever needed.
