The marine groups included are the bivalves, gastropods, cephlapods, stomatopods, shrimps, lobsters, crabs, hagfishes, sharks, batoid fishes, chimaeras, bony fishes, sea turtles and marine mammals. Introductory chapters outline the environmental, ecological and biogeographical factors influencing the marine biota.

This final volume concludes with an index of scientific and common names.
