"This classic handbook for naturalists, students, and marine biologists has now been thoroughly updated in a new revised edition. Over the last twenty years, this has become the go-to reference for all those working in the field of marine biology, enabling rapid identification of all but the rarest species of benthic invertebrates and fish encountered around the shores of north-west Europe. It covers 1500 species from all major marine groups, includes occurrence and distribution for each species, provides user-friendly identification keys, and is illustrated throughout by more than 2000 high quality line drawings. [It also] provides an accessible and synoptic account of the marine fauna of north-west Europe, assisted by proven identification keys and clear line illustrations; incorporates the latest revisions to systematic groups; [and made] improvements ... to text and keys [which] will facilitate student tuition.
