"Coquillages Nudibranchs, et Autres Mollusques Marins" is a magnificent book containing beautiful photographic images of the common and a few uncommon mollusks found in the waters of Reunion Island. Most of the shells are shown alive in their natural habitat. A few are also depicted as specimen shells. The text, written in French, offers descriptive material about the shells. A large section of the book is devoted to the Nudibranchs and the related mollusks. These photographs are stunningly beautiful. It has been a long time since we've had a book on the mollusks of this mid-Indian Ocean island. "Coquillages Nudibranchs, et Autres Mollusques Marins" fills that need. The book covers more than 700 species found off Reunion and contains more than 1400 photographs. These are new copies of the book imported from Reunion.
