Summary Lord Howe Island, a oceanic outcrop of volcanic origin situated between Australia and New Zealand, is fringed by the worlds southernmost consolidated coral reef. The Capricorn Group of the southern Great Barrier Reef is a series of patch reefs and low coral cays. For more than 30 years Dr Kraft, along with his students and colleagues, has studied the species-rich marine algal communities of these reefs, paying special attention to subtidal habitats. This authoritative account, documenting the green algae of Lord Howe Island and the southern Great Barrier Reef, will, in due course, be followed by treatments of the brown and red algae
