Críticas

..".a beautifully illustrated work." ("International Journal of Crustacean Research") ""Marine Fauna and Flora of Bermuda" fully gives what the editor stated as its purpose: 'to reveal the beauty and order in marine life by introducing the reader to the organisms that inhabit the ocean around Bermuda.' The book will have much use beyond these waters. It well deserves to be highly recommended to 'scientists, teachers, students, and other nature lovers' for whom it was designed to serve as a guide" ("Helgolander Meeresuntersuchungen," 1986)

Reseña del editor

A practical guide to 1 527 marine organisms found in the vicinity of Bermuda. Useful as a field identification guide and an introduction to systematic marine biology throughout the tropical West Atlantic. The book covers a wide range of fauna and flora - from bacteria to seaweeds to molluscs to fish to whales. Definitions for a large number of categories above the genus level, from family through phylum, make up the framework for an orderly representation of the diversity of marine life. In addition, the book is illustrated with line drawings and color plates.

A profitable field guide 2 de septiembre de 2012
Por Ashtar Command - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
"Marine Fauna and Flora of Bermuda" by Wolfgang Sterrer is a macro-field guide covering 740 full-sized pages. Over 1500 species are described, most never before included in a general guide. Since many of the organisms in the waters of Bermuda can also be found in the West Indies or southeastern United States, the field guide can be used profitably in those areas, as well.

There are 228 black-and-white plates and 16 colour plates. The latter show invertebrates. Weirdly, each plate has a private corporate sponsor! Thus, the Bank of Bermuda sponsors the plate showing sea hares and other sea slugs. Thank you. By contrast, the Bank of Butterfield brings us sea squirts. It seems this work is "profitable" in more ways than one...

Organisms featured in this volume include cyanobacteria, fungi, lichens, amoebas, bristle worms, beard worms, spoon worms and (surprise) round worms. Biggest surprise: the Belted Kingfisher.

The Bermuda Triangle might indeed be dangerous, but perhaps not in the sense we expected!
