Encyclopedia of Underwater Life: Aquatic Invertebrates and Fishes

Front Cover
Andrew C. Campbell, John Dawes
Oxford University Press, 2005 - Aquatic animals - 306 pages
"An insight into underwater life, this encyclopedia offers coverage of the fish and aquatic invertebrates that inhabit our rivers, lakes, and oceans. It describes in detail the anatomy, behaviour, habitat, breeding, and conservation status of species: from microscopic, single-celled organisms swept along by water currents to gigantic powerhouses of the deep. Feature articles examine some of the strangest and most interesting aspects of these species in more depth, such as the origins of coral reefs; the lifecycle of the salmon; and how fish produce and use artificial illumination." "Photographs and explanatory diagrams enhance the clear, authoritative text written by some of the world's leading experts in freshwater and marine biology."--BOOK JACKET.
