You have never seen the Red Sea like this. The pages of this book are full of previously unknown species of fish, nudibranchs, and crustaceans. Many of them were discovered by the author and his colleagues. But even previously well-known species are photographed with unprecedented quality.
The author's photo guides on fish, nudibranchs, crustaceans, sea shells, echinoderms and flatworms have been highly acclaimed by divers and scientists, but he has always dreamed of writing a comprehensive book on the fauna of coral reefs in the Red Sea. Red Sea Marine Life is a truly comprehensive: 2900 full-colour photographs of 2100+ species, including 810+ fish species, 250 cnidarians (corals and relatives) and nearly 350 species of nudibranchs and sea slugs. Live photos of hundreds of species have never before appeared in field guides or popular books.
A lot has changed in marine biology in the two decades since the previous Red Sea guides were published. And this book is based on the latest research. Red Sea Marine Life will make you take a fresh look at the seemingly well-known Red Sea, the house reef of Europe.
