The waters around Britain and Ireland contain a huge variety of marine life and some of the brightest and most attractive are the sea anemones and corals, the Anthozoa. Anemones and corals can be found from rockpools to the deepest depths and in all habitats from rocky reefs to soft mud.
A comprehensive guide to all known sea anemones and corals found in British and Irish inshore waters, this is an essential companion for divers, snorkelers, rockpoolers and students who want to identify and know more about the sea anemones and corals they find.
This book is illustrated with over 200 in situ underwater colour photographs and illustrations. The introduction contains a useful table showing habitat, distribution, depth, size, rarity and conservation status for each species.
Sea Anemones and Corals of Britain and Ireland has been produced as a part of the Seasearch project, which offers training in the identification of marine life and habitats and encourages recording by volunteers.
