CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Highly recommended!, July 10, 2005

This is a very nice book when we marine biologists need a refresher, or as a starting guide to those who wish to become one! I’m a big fan of the ‘Chapter Overviews’ at the end of each section.

Not sure why it’s nearly $100.00 for a paperback book, though..
