Frankfurt am Main 2009, geb., 720 Seiten, Großformat, 4228 Farbfotos. With more than 4.200 photographs it provides the greatest possible coverage of selected groups of the enormous variety of marine invertebrates in a single book. It is primarily aimed to assist people who have a keen interest in the small animals they encounter in the sea other than fishes, to find their scientific names or where to classify them. Presented here are the species one is likely to see when diving or snorkelling in the sea, as well as those that are traded in the aquarium industry, with many large photographs. Most species occur on shallow reefs in tropical seas, with the greatest species-diversity in the Southeast Asian regions. This World Atlas includes many of the familiar decapod Crustacea, lobsters, crabs, shrimps, some worms and the highly diverse Mollusca, sea slugs and some other snails such as cowry shells shown with their animal, as well as octopus and squid, and various other groups of mobile invertebrates such as worms, flatworms, sea stars, urchins and many other echinoderms. With very little exception, the animals were all photographed in the wild.
