Caption: Coral reef. Coral reefs form the basis of extensive and diverse marine ecosystems. Corals are tiny animals which live in colonies which build these familiar mineral structures around themselves from calcium-rich secretions. The animals extend minute filaments from their protective homes to filter plankton from the water. Photographed off Olasana Island in the Solomon Islands.
