About this book

Barnacles are familiar objects to mariners and seaside tourists. They extend from the high water splash zone to the depths of the ocean and can also live close to hydrothermal vents.

This completely new book updates Bassindale's classic work on British Barnacles, published in 1966, and Rainbow, 1984. This is the first Synopsis to include colour plates, in addition to line drawings, for the skin lining the opercular plates, the tergo-scutal flaps, is distinctively coloured and provides a very helpful aid to identification.

With coverage of the seas surrounding the British Isles to a depth of 200m, this new volume should foster interest in these fascinating animals.
