Nudibranchs of Heron Island, Great Barrier ReefI really don't understand how we've never offered this great book before. Even though it is years late in coming to our inventory listing we are delighted to have found a few brand new copies to offer to you now. It is a superb study by two Australian experts on these mollusks. The book contains very thorough descriptive information about the 280 species that are included in this study and some sharp and stunning photographs on these animals taken in their habitats. The photos are of nice size and for the greater part are 8 to a page. The book also contains an extensive check list of all of these mollusks found off the Great Barrier Reef. If you are not among the fortunate few who have the opportunity to dive in this part of the world this book is the next best thing for you to observe these beautiful and exotic shells.
