John Stanley Gardiner is best known for his extensive expeditions into the Indian Ocean to study the flora and fauna of coral reefs and islands in the early 1900s. His contributions to reef origins and reef morphology have been discussed by others but little has been made of his zoological studies, which were well ahead of their time, and his significant influence on the Great Barrier Reef Expedition of 1928-29, which proved to be a major breakthrough in the study of coral reefs. This paper reviews his important legacy in this regard. © 2007 The Royal Society.
