Guide to the identification of precious and semi-precious corals in commercial trade

Document (PDF, 6.5 MB) (2011) by Ernest W T Cooper, Susan J Torntore, Angela S M Leung, Tanya Shadbolt and Carolyn Dawe. ISBN 978-0-9693730-3-2. TRAFFIC North America and WWF-Canada. Vancouver. This identification guide is aimed at enforcement officers (e.g. Wildlife Inspectors, Customs Inspectors, etc.) who are responsible for implementing regulations on the international trade in precious corals—primarily, but not exclusively CITES. In addition, the guide will be valuable to fisheries managers and scientists who are involved with conservation of coral resources.
