Reviews

Jorgensen (shark researcher, Monterey Bay Aquarium) presents this lavishly illustrated exposition on the variety, history, physiology and behavior of sharks. The evolutionary history and current diversity of sharks are explored, followed by life and reproductive cycles, details of anatomical function, and migratory and predatory behavior. The last chapter discusses the future of shark life in the current evolutionary environment, including threats from human beings due to either desire for shark body parts or fear of injury. Large color photographs, many in macro detail, form the central item or background of most pages.-- (12/01/2013)
