Tuvalu's shallow marine environments are dominantly fringing and patch reefs. Five of the islands are true coral atolls, with a continuous eroded reef platform surrounding a central lagoon, three islands are comprised of a single islet made up of sand and coral materials (McLean & Hosking, 1991). This article documents the status of corals reefs of Tuvalu, including threats to coral reef biodiversity.
