About this book

Sea Slugs of the Algarve is intended to help those who wish to know more about the sea slug species which can be found in the Algarve and provide a means for their identification. Sea Slugs of the Algarve figures and describes 115 species, based on 357 photos. Several determination keys and visual quick reference guides help the divers to identify each species. The book is restricted to species which can be observed in the intertidal zone or through recreational diving, leaving out those which are only known by collecting with more intrusive means such as dredging. The authors have tried to use a simple and accessible language as much as possible whilst retaining scientific accuracy, in an effort to gain the interest and curiosity of all those who love nature and the sea.

Sea Slugs of the Algarve is printed on Priplack, a water resistant plastic, which allows us to use it on a boat or at the sea side.
