The fifth New Zealand title in this internationally acclaimed series of compact, easy-to-use guides which is the ideal car glovebox, pocket or backpack reference for anyone with an interest in natural history. A Photographic Guide to New Zealand Seashells covers 165 common and a few rarer species of molluscs one is most likely to encounter on New Zealand seashores. Each is treated with colour photographs - sometimes including the live creature - plus descriptive information including reproduction, habitat notes and distribution maps. A comprehensive introduction gives an overview of the range of molluses and their distribution and identification.
Margaret Morley is both a Research Associate and a volunteer at Aukland Museum. She has spent many years collecting, studying and documenting seashells, and has combined her knowledge with the outstanding photographic abilities of Iain Anderson, an experienced underwater photogrpher, to produce this useful, colourful and informative guide.
