"A colourful and refreshing publication about marine life of the Australian rocky reefs, this hardcover, oversize volume provides readers with comprehensive materials on the ecology of Australia's rocky reefs and their fisheries. Divided into three parts and containing 26 chapters,
UNDER SOUTHERN SEAS is a pleasure to the eye. Richly illustrated with around 200 colour photographs, and contributions of 32 marine biologists, Neil Andrew's work maintains a good balance between text and photos." -- Xavier Gros, European Commission, Joint Research Centre, The Netherlands, Electronic Green Journal, Issue 14, Spring 2001.
This comprehensive volume includes chapters on sharks, rock lobsters, abalone and fishes, as well as many of the less familiar inhabitants of
rocky reefs. It is suitable for marine biologists, oceanographers, underwater photographers, or anyone willing to discover Australia's underwater world.
