  • Divers Guide to Marine Life of Britain and Ireland - 2nd Edition - PRE ORDER

**PRE-ORDER - Book released on 30th November 2018 **

The cool temperate waters around Britain and Ireland are at a crossroads between warmer waters to the south and Arctic ones to the north. Consequently they contain a huge variety of marine animals and plants which differ significantly from place to place around the islands and shores.

This guide aims to introduce divers and snorkellers to the most common and identifiable animals and plants they will encounter underwater, both widely distributed species and some of the specialities of different areas.

Completely revised and expanded this Second Edition covers almost 300 individual species and groups of species seen underwater, from tiny fragile sea spiders to the massive plankton -feeding Basking Shark.

265 individual species descriptions, each with information on habitat, size, depth range and distribution in easy to use icon format

Text emphasising the key features for identification of each species and possible confusions

Underwater photographs showing each species as the diver or snorkeller would see it

A unique ‘confidence guide’ to identify which species are easily recognised and which are likely to require confirmation

Over 30 additional groups of plants and animals that cannot be identified individually underwater, but can be important features of the living community

Information on marine habitats, conservation status and non-native species in British and Irish waters

“The Diver’s Guide to Marine Life of Britain and Ireland” has been produced as part of the Seasearch project, which offers training in the identification of marine life and habitats and encourages recording by volunteers.
