About this book

The cool temperate waters around Britain and Ireland are at the cross roads between warmer waters to the south and colder Arctic ones to the north. Consequently they contain a huge variety of marine animals and plants which differ significantly from place to place around our islands.

Seasearch Observer's Guide to Marine Life of Britain and Ireland aims to introduce the reader to a selection of the animals and plants, from sponges to fishes and sea squirts to seaweeds, that are most regularly seen by divers, snorkellers and rockpoolers around our coasts.

Over 200 species are described in detail, with underwater photographs to aid identification in situ. Each account contains information on identification, habitat, size and distribution and how to distinguish them from similar animals and plants.

Seasearch Observer's Guide to Marine Life of Britain and Ireland is produced as part of the Seasearch project, which offers training in marine life and habitats and encourages recording by volunteers.

This guide was previously published under the title Seasearch Observer's Guide to Marine Life of Britain and Ireland.
