The first edition of Sharks and Rays of Australia was produced in 1994. Since then, 29 species have been discovered in Australian seas and more than 100 species have been named and formally described.
As well as documenting these advances, the new edition includes updated species classifications and descriptions, distribution maps, line illustrations by Georgina Davis, family keys and outlines of Chondrichthyan biology and interactions with humans.
The book catalogues a rich seam of Australia's marine biodiversity, providing an indispensible compendium for scientists and a baseline reference for the fishing industry.
