Sharks are some of the most misunderstood animals on the planet. We still have a lot to learn about these fascinating creatures, which are more seriously threatened with extinction and in greater need of conservation and management than any other major group of vertebrates. A Pocket Guide to Sharks of the World is the first field guide to identify, illustrate, and describe the world's 501 shark species. Its compact format makes it handy for many situations, including recognizing living species, fishery catches, or parts sold at markets. The book also contains useful sections on identifying shark teeth and the shark fins most commonly encountered in the fin trade. A Pocket Guide to Sharks of the World is an essential resource for fisheries management, international trade regulation, and shark conservation. * The first pocket guide to all 501 shark species* Each species is illustrated and described* Handy, compact format with concise text* A six-page guide to the identification of shark teeth* An eight-page guide to the identification of shark fins

Review:

"This well-organized, well-written guide is ideal for scholars, professionals, and enthusiasts."--Library Journal

"Almost anyone can identify a fish as a shark because of its general body shape, but many of the 501 shark species look so similar that the species are difficult to separate. Though there are many reference works on sharks, none fit the definition of a pocket guide. Producing such a work is not easy. Ebert, Fowler, and Dando deserve to be congratulated. They have created an ideal guidebook that contains the essential information for species identification and, most important, superbly illustrates each species in color."--Choice

"Elegantly illustrated in much the same fashion as well-known bird and mammal books, A Pocket Guide to Sharks of the World is a great addition to the library of both the armchair traveler, like me, who rarely travels, and the intrepid traveler, who is rarely at home."---Gabriel Thoumi, Monga Bay,

"This is a great book to show that there is much more than the myths of great white sharks attacking swimmers. . . . Everything you need to know about these sea creatures is in this guide."---Dave Lewis, Birds from Behind Blog,
