A comprehensive marine life identification guide on the Maldives in particular, and the Indian Ocean in general, with over 1000 colour photographs. It covers a wide range of the most commonly seen invertebrates and illustrates the extraordinary diversity and colour of the natural environment of the Maldives. It should be useful as a reference for scuba divers, reef walkers and snorkellers, as well as for aquarists and students of marine biology and natural history. The volume is based on scientific classification, and there is a full glossary that explains any reference to scientific terms. The main chapters cover marine plants, sponges, Cnidarians, flatworms, segmented worms, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Echinoderms and Ascidians, and there are further chapters on reptiles, sea birds and mammals.

However, it is not made clear on Amazon that the book covers all aspects of Maldivian marine life EXCEPT the actual fish and sharks! I was hoping for a single book to take with me on my holiday. I would still highly recommend this book as a reference guide to everything else, but thought I should write this review to ensure no-one else makes the same mistake. Buy a fish identification book as well and you will be able to identify absolutely anything the Maldives throws at you!
