This is such a large topic that it deserves an entire Wiki devoted to it. However...

Color and Nuke

Why Nuke is and isn't a great color manipulator.

Color in Nuke: an Intro

Color nodes

Really important nodes are marked with a asterix:

Add

Multiply *

Clamp

ColorLookup *

ColorSpace

ColorCorrect *

Exposure (and why not to use it)

Grade *

Histogram (and why it isn't so great)

HueCorrect *

HueShift

HSVTool

Saturation *

Sampler *

Newbies are advised to read these in the order in which they are presented.

All color edits involve one or more discreet operations that are, at heart, entirely mathematical. This is a list of them and their 'visualisation' derived from a Sampler node:

This is a table of which color operations are to be found in which Node:

The Color Node Interface

When doing a color manipulation on an image it is wise to seek feedback on its color values. Heres how:
