About this book

The Republic of Singapore consists of a main island and approximately 60 small offshore islands. The varied sea-based recreational activities bring many people in contact with marine life. This compact guidebook (10 × 15 cm) features many of the harmful marine creatures present in Singapore's waters and is meant to inform rather than to discourage people from associating with the marine environment. With some knowledge, people should be able to recognise species which are potentially harmful, and to avoid contact with them or, if left with no choice, to handle them with caution.

A phyJogenetic arrangement is used in this book, where discussion of the harmful marine animals moves from the simple to the complex forms. While first aid treatment is included, any victims should seek medical treatment at the earliest opportunity.
