An Introduction to Marine Life


This guide introduces the broad diversity of marine life to amateur naturalists, beachcombers, divers and others who have an interest in the life that exists in the sea.

All major kinds of living marine organisms, both common and obscure, are featured; from seaweeds to seabirds, seawhips to seahorses.

In Museum Victoria Field Guide: An Introduction to Marine Life, illustrated quick guides enable easy identification of the major groups, including dangerous marine life, introduced species and fishing bait. Each entry is illustrated with local examples from southern Australia, and further references, a glossary, and indices to scientific and common names are included.
