Due to a combination of advances in technology, government legislation, and market forces, the LED lighting market is set to explode. This can be looked at in a number of different lights, from the rather small (home lighting is about to be totally gadget-ified), to the large (about 4 billion light bulbs in the US are going to be replaced, many of them with LED bulbs), to the world-changing (for the first time in history man is providing light for himself without the use of some form of fire). This book focuses on the first of those three: it's a practical, actionable explainer for LED lighting, aimed at the normal, household replacement bulb, but many of the same concepts apply to other bulb designs (MR16, PAR) and lighting scenarios.

LED bulbs are available, and while they will be changing greatly over the next few years, the core concepts will remain the same. This provides consumers (and, let's face it, geeks) with two interesting questions -- what to do now and what do they need to know about the future. The book tackles both of those, from explaining the parts of an LED bulb, to talking through some of the interesting challenges manufacturers face, to discussing implications for the future of solid state lighting. It's a mix of the practical and an examination of the LED bulb as a gadget, the way you'd look at a mobile phone or laptop.

Coral reefs have been long regarded with awe by the millions of people who have encountered them over the centuries. Early seafarers were wary of them, naturalists were confused by them, yet many coastal people benefited greatly from these mysterious rocky structures that grew up to the surface of the sea. They have been rich in their supply of food, and they provided a breakwater from storms and high waves to countless coastal communities that developed from their protection.

Their scale is enormous and their value high. Found in countless locations around the world, from the Indo-Pacific coral reef province to the Caribbean and Australia, they support both marine and human life. In this Very Short Introduction, Charles Sheppard provides an account of what coral reefs are, how they are formed, how they have evolved, and the biological lessons we can learn from them.

Today, the vibrancy and diversity of these fascinating ecosystems are under threat from over exploitation and could face future extinction, unless our conservation efforts are stepped up in order to save them.
