About this book

Sharks are some of the most misunderstood animals on the planet. We still have a lot to learn about these fascinating creatures, which are more seriously threatened with extinction and in greater need of conservation and management than any other major group of vertebrates.

A Pocket Guide to Sharks of the World is the only field guide to identify, illustrate, and describe every known shark species. Its compact format makes it handy for many situations, including recognizing living species, fishery catches, or parts sold at markets. This expanded second edition presents lavish images, details on newly discovered species, and updated text throughout. The book contains useful sections on identifying shark teeth and the shark fins most commonly encountered in the fin trade, and takes a look at shark biology, ecology, and conservation. A Pocket Guide to Sharks of the World will be an essential resource and definitive reference for years to come.

Praise for the previous edition:

"This well-organized, well-written guide is ideal for scholars, professionals, and enthusiasts."
Library Journal

"Ebert, Fowler, and Dando deserve to be congratulated. They have created an ideal guidebook that contains the essential information for species identification and, most important, superbly illustrates each species in color."
Choice

"A Pocket Guide to Sharks of the World is a great addition to the library of both the armchair traveler, like me, who rarely travels, and the intrepid traveler, who is rarely at home."
– Gabriel Thoumi, Monga Bay

"This is a great book to show that there is much more than the myths of great white sharks attacking swimmers [...] Everything you need to know about these sea creatures is in this guide."
– Dave Lewis, Birds from Behind Blog
