 This volume is the authoritative source on sponges of Australia and its territorial waters. It deals with some 1400 species in 77 families. The volume contains numerous taxonomic decisions and includes an historical overview of sponge taxonomy. A synopsis of the location and status of Australian collections is also provided.

This is the first comprehensive catalogue of Australian Porifera and is an essential text for those involved with this group.


 ". . . .it should be clear to the reader how useful the large work laid down in this book is . . . it is an inevitable tool for any specialist revising taxa in a larger region or worldwide." - O Tendal, Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology 194
