Victor Ariel Gallardo (Vice-Chair of Census of Marine Life) about the book: "The quality of this book sets standards. Identifications have been made and chapters have been authored by a multinational team of highly reputed specialists from equally reputed institutions and most chapters have been written or co-authored by THE world specialist in the particular taxon of the region and have been proof read by at least one other specialist."
