Mediterranean and Atlantic Invertebrates Guide by Peter Wirtz and Helmut Debelius
About 7 million years ago, the Strait of Gibraltar was opened and in a giant waterfall, the Mediterranean Sea was filled with water from the Atlantic Ocean.
Animals in the Mediterranean and the eastern Atlantic are therefore closely linked.
This book presents 820 Types of Invertebrates in over 1,000 underwater pictures.
All major and common species are shown, many have never been photographed and some have only been discovered recently while others are still undeclared.
Four of them were named in honor of the author who has observed the behavior and ecology of the Eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea for the past 30 years.
