A Practical Guide to the Marine Animals of Northeastern North Americaby Leland W. Pollock
Synopses & Reviews
A Practical Guide to the Marine Animals of Northeastern North America features Leland Pollock's innovative, user-friendly keys that circumvent many of the difficulties of traditional identification systems. Pollock's keys offer choices among distinctive attributes of the specimen. Results are compared to all variations found in the region's fauna, using a neatly displayed tabular form accompanied by many line drawings.
The introduction describes marine habitats, tips for conducting fieldwork, and outlines groups of organisms found in northeastern North America, from Nova Scotia to North Carolina. Although designed for the nonexpert, the manual provides coverage sufficient to meet the more demanding needs of those conducting biotic surveys and advanced studies in the region.
At last a guide to fish as well as invertebrates with profusely illustrated keys and the most recent terminology. It is not only practical but authoritative as well
Includes bibliographical references (p. -342) and index.
