WAS $150. This monograph on marine biodiversity is a result of 132 experts comprehensively and systematically researching and compiling the species recorded in China's seas in the last 70 years. From bacteria to mammals, over 20,000 species were verified. Each species entry includes the scientific name, author(s), distribution, and reference(s). The index includes all the taxonomic levels. In this translated English edition, revisions were made throughout the book. Hirudinea was added, and Bryozoa, Entoprocta, and Echinoderm listings were completely revised. The distribution range for each species was generally arranged from north to south and from east to west to help readers who are not familiar with China's geography. Several maps were produced for this translated edition to further aid in finding localities for the species. This book can be used for research, management, and teaching of marine biological resources. It can also be used as a reference for marine and environmental scientists and translators.
