درباره این کتاب:
available in the US, this is the revised
and expanded fifth edition of a book that
has been the standard reference work for
divers, anglers and scientists for over 30
■ در این کتاب چه
The new edition covers 1,670 fish species
found in the seas of tropical Southeast
Asia, the Southern Pacific islands and
Australia—including the Great Barrier
Reef, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand,
Vietnam and the Philippines.
A must-have reference for divers, marine
biologists, ecologists, commercial
fisheries and sports anglers, this book
includes a comprehensive identification
guide to the families of reef fishes, with
a definitive index. An informative and
detailed Introduction includes area
coverage; faunal composition; biology,
behavior and ecology of reef fishes;
classification of fishes, and much more.
Originally published as Marine Fishes of
South-East Asia, this edition contains
numerous revisions in nomenclature
affecting both the scientific Latin names
and common names of the region's fishes.
In all cases these have been made to
reflect the current universally-accepted
terminology. The common names in this book
are the result of a recent initiative
undertaken by the Australian Government
and Seafood Services Australia.
Each species is depicted in detailed,
full-color illustrations by noted marine
artists Roger Swainston and Jill Ruse,
including over 35 new species. In many
cases, the illustrations show both male
and female examples.
With more than 2,000 illustrations and 29
color photographs, this definitive field
guide will continue to be an invaluable
resource for professionals and hobbyists
