A tremendous piece of publishing, this Pisces CD-book makes Stephenson's exquisite monograph available to a wide natural history public at an affordable price.
From the publisher's announcement:
The two volumes of Stephenson's "British Sea Anemones" were published by the Ray Society in 1928 and 1935, covering the known British species, and a number of species whose status was not known. Stephenson explains:
"The Actiniaria are a group which offer an excellent field for study in this direction. They are preeminently animals which cannot be understood unless every avenue of approach to their problems be explored. It is possible, for instance, to differentiate Actinian species, in certain cases, on the basis of their various modes of sexual and asexual reproduction; and as work proceeds, other such means will doubtless become apparent.
Pisces Conservation are delighted to release "British Sea Anemones" on one CD, for Windows PCs and Macs, with fully searchable text and hyperlinks for ease of navigation.
The books contain over 100 text figures, and 33 plates, including exquisite colour illustrations of the species. As with all our e-books, the quality of reproduction of illustrations and text is excellent.
The books are in Adobe Acrobat pdf format (with free Reader software supplied), allowing high-quality printing of the text and plates.
