Undoubtedly, this is an excellent, thoroughly researched and clearly described book for layman and undergraduate. The second hand copy which I bought was in excellent condition and is less than 10 years old so does not suffer greatly, if at all, from lack of currency.

A little more "used" looking than I thought it would be, but what can you expect for an older book I suppose - contents as described and arrived promptly

Ok so i had to buy this book and read most of it for my first year marine biology degree, as a newcomer to the subject i found it very informative and interesting, it did however lack in a few areas, but as a basic text for me it was very useful
