regular deep water species
In Sea-Urchins III approximately 250 additional and often rare regular species from the deep sea are introduced, including about 100 cidaroids. The author shows the differences between them by descriptions and numerous coloured photos and black/white drawings. Latest scientific findings are added. The book is completed by a bibliography and an index for all three volumes. more.....
