Second Edition

Graham J Edgar  

Colour photographs
528 pages
Publisher: New Holland

    Paperback - 2012
ISBN: 9781921517174 - AU $ 60.00



Many people recognise the beauty and diversity of plant and animal communities in Australia's tropical seas, particularly those along the Great Barrier Reef. By contrast, relatively few know about the immense variety along the southern half of the continent.

This book descibes 1450 of the most commonly seen plants and animals of the region and includes notes on their habitat and distribution; 1500 colour photographs plus a wealth of information for academic marine biologists, divers, beachcombers and those who fish professionally or for recreation.

This is the most definitive reference work of its kind on this subject.
