'The book can be recommended for use as a field and laboratory guide for students studying coastal zooplankton at the undergraduate level. At the very reasonable price of GBP15.95 ! others with an interest in coastal zooplankton may also wish to add this book to their reference collection for the sheer diversity of the fauna portrayed in the photographs.'
