Green Guide : Sea Fishes of Australia
by Nigel Marsh.
Behavioural insights, stunning photography and your questions answered.
This new title in New Holland’s award-winning Green Guides series investigates the ever-popular subject of Australia’s sea fishes, which include familiar species such as the anemonefishes, parrotfishes, wrasses, sharks and many more. It contains fact panels covering interesting aspects of the subject, including what these fishes eat, where they live, how they reproduce, and why certain species pack a very poisonous punch, with some of the strongest toxins known in the animal kingdom. The many beautiful images are taken from the author’s own collection, which has been built up over many decades.
This book has been written with the amateur naturalist in mind. Information is organised simply, with individual species or group entries describing key characteristics, such as where they are found, food requirements and behavioural habits. Each entry is accompanied by a colour photograph and, where appropriate, distribution maps. In addition, fact panels interspersed throughout the text highlight surprising snippets of information.
The Australian Green Guides have been created for wildlife enthusiasts of all ages. The most commonly asked questions are answered with particular emphasis on fascinating behavioural insights into both common and unusual creatures. The pages are alive with entertaining and informative text accompanied by exciting action photography.
