Canberra: Australian Biological Resources Study, 2006. Octavo, paperback, colour photographs.
This is a guide to the nudibranchs of south-eastern Queensland. The book is easy to use and, as these animals are among the most colourful and charismatic of marine creatures, a pleasure to peruse. It covers 277 species of nudibranch all found on the Sunshine Coast of southern Queensland, but most also found elsewhere in Australian seas and many occurring in the broader tropical Indo-West Pacific Region. Beautifully illustrated, with photos by naturalist/diver Gary Cobb and colleagues, and text by marine biologist, Richard Willan, the book provides a bridge between professionals and amateurs, and will do much to raise and enhance awareness of the marine invertebrate community, and to encourage its conservation.
