A Photographic Guide to New Zealand Seashells covers 165 common and a few rarer species of molluscs one is most likely to encounter on New Zealand seashores.
Each is treated with colour photographs – sometimes including the live creature – plus descriptive information including reproduction, habitat notes and distribution maps. A comprehensive introduction gives an overview of the range of molluscs and their distribution and identification.
A Photographic Guide to New Zealand Seashells is the fifth title in this series of compact, easy-to-use guides which is the ideal car glovebox, pocket or backpack reference for anyone with an interest in natural history.
