Sea Stars, Sea Urchins and Allies
Echinoderms of Florida &  the Caribbean
By Gordon Hendler,John E. Miller, David L. Pawson, Porter M. Kier

ISBN 9781560984504, published in1995, the Smithsonian Institution, hard cover, cloth binding with dust jacket, sewn binding, 390 pages,  page size is 7 by 10 inches (17.5 by 25.5cm) 191 photo plates and b/w photos and charts throughout text.

I think that this is a high quality publication that looks as if it should provide a lot of information for both amateurs and advanced students of this beautiful  branch of the animal kingdom.  While it concentrates on the 5 classes , consisting of 150 species that inhabit the relatively warm waters of the Caribbean and Florida at a depth of less than 100 feet, there is enough general information about these creatures to serve as a good introduction to their lives  and habitats for the better part of the Echinoderm family. The authors are acknowledged experts in  their fields and the photographs, many of living creatures in their habitats are very well done. This book appears to be as new but there is some very slight tear (now tape reinforced) at the upper side of the spine, some very slight shelfware on the covers.The book appears to be unused. If you already are interested in these creatures or would like to know more about them, this is a book for you.
