As the major reef framework builder, hermatypic corals play key roles in maintaining the stability and function of coral reef ecosystems. Based on historical data of hermatypic coral and the taxonomic research results, Huang et al (see pages 515–523 of this issue) summarize the taxonomy of hermatypic corals, and present a comprehensive species list of hermatypic corals reported in China, and standardize their Chinese names. The picture is the coral reef habitat of Zhubi Reef in Nansha Islands. (Photographed by Hui Huang)
