Based on original research, this is the only comprehensive guide to seahorse species world-wide. Detailed background information introduces the reader to the fascinating biology of these unusual fishes, the threats they face and current efforts to conserve them for the future. Available evidence suggests that seahorse numbers are declining, yet until now there has been no clear indication of even how many species exist. The heart of the work presents descriptions of each species supported by full illustrations, photographs, distribution maps and a pictorial key. The clear non-technical language used makes it valuable for conservationists, researchers, museum curators, trade and customs officials, fishermen, aquarists and interested lay-people alike.
Contents include: Behaviour and ecology; distribution and habitats; reproduction; A global trade; Conservation issues; Project Seahorse; Taxonomy and classification; Seahorse species; and IUCN and CITES explained.

2002 CD-ROM version (PC/MAC) updated with minor corrections. Presented as an Adobe Acrobat document in the same format as the original book (ISBN: 9780953469307, now unfortunately out of print).

"The first guidebook to the world's seahorses does justice to their beauty and extraordinary biology, while being a user-friendly identification handbook and offering practical advice on the urgent need for conservation."
