1 Review
This is the first handbook devoted to sea cucumbers in the waters of British Columbia, southeast Alaska and northern Washington. Philip Lambert describes 34 species, including 2 new ones. He provides all the details to satisfy the professional biologist, yet his easy-going style makes this book suitable for anyone interested in coastal marine life. Photographs and illustrations help identify each species; a special colour section features the more colourful species in their natural habitats.
