Thuwa dazzlingly ikkulurit firxa ta 'balel tal-baħar to be found by sharp-eyed divers in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Malaysia, Timor-Leste and the Solomon Islands is reflected in the 1000-plus species pictured in this field guide.

Dak huwa numru pjuttost tajjeb (l-esperti jqisu li hemm xi 3000 speċi msemmija madwar id-dinja), u l-awturi jsostnu li ħafna minn dawk li jgħollu dawn il-paġni qatt qabel ma dehru fil-kotba tal-ID.

Iżda dak li huwa utli wkoll dwar din il-gwida huwa li r-ritratti żgħar jieħdu kont ta 'dak li jista' jħawwad varjazzjonijiet relatati mal-kulur u l-età.

Il-ktieb huwa wieħed minn dawk fejn

Jien ngħid li l-funzjoni tgħaqqad il-forma - ċertament mhix xi ħaġa ta 'sbuħija f'termini ta' tipografija jew disinn, iżda tagħmel ix-xogħol b'mod sempliċi u effettiv.

Jien kont nużaha kuntenta d-darba li jmiss nixtieq npoġġi isem lil nudibranch, minħabba r-raggruppamenti sempliċi u loġiċi tiegħu u l-inklużjoni ta 'dawk il-varjanti kollha.

Kotba ta' l-identità li jxerrdu numru inadegwat ta' annimali b'mod semi-addoċċ jistgħu jkunu irritanti.

Din hija kollha dwar l-istampi, minħabba li t-test li jakkumpanja huwa minimu. Xorta waħda, ġust biżżejjed, sa fejn tista’ tidħol biex tiddeskrivi speċi individwali ta’ balalu tal-baħar?

You get the common and Latin names, family, geographical distribution, size and distinctive features. Typically this boils down to “Yellow-Face, Trinchesia Trinchesia sp. Indonesia, 9mm. ID: red cerata, white apex with tubercles.”

Particularly helpful, however, is the ritratt index at the beginning of the book that guides you to the right group of nudibranchs. It does make a difference, and the less unproductive leafing around I have to do the better.

Underwater photographers Andrey Ryanskiy and Yury Ivanov say they evolved from being btala-divers into professionals who carry out hundreds of dives every year in the Coral Triangle countries. Lucky them.

This seems to be naturalist Ryanskiy’s first book with Ivanov, but solo he has previously come up with five other “Reef ID” books, covering Coral Triangle fish, Indo-Pacific crustaceans, the Maldives, Indonesia and the Philippines. They’re doing a useful job.
