About this book

British and Irish shallow seas contain an astonishing 7% of the world's seaweed species, around 700 different seaweeds, and yet most divers, snorkelers and rockpoolers can put names to only a handful of them.

Seasearch Guide to Seaweeds of Britain and Ireland aims to de-mystify seaweed identification for the nonspecialist. The seaweeds selected for this guide are those with features large enough to be seen by eye or with the aid of a good hand lens. Over 200 species are described in detail, with additional information on habitat, distribution and confusion species. Species are divided into three main sections, red, brown and green seaweeds, each with its own introduction. With over 500 colour photographs and illustrations this guide is an invaluable aid to any person wishing to identifying seaweeds.

Seasearch Guide to Seaweeds of Britain and Ireland has been produced as a part of the Seasearch project, which offers training in the identification of marine life and habitats and encourages recording by volunteers.

This is a straight reprint without amendments.
