Hayward and Ryland's Marine Fauna of the British Isles and North-West Europe has become a classic in the marine reference literature. The same editors have now prepared a shorter version suitable for individual purchase and field use. Rapid and easy identification of all but the rarest of the marine animals found on the sea shores and shallow sublittoral zones of north-west Europe is made possible by the provision of simple dichotomous keys, individual descriptions, and high quality line and stipple drawings. The occurrence and distribution is given for each species, and reference provided to the specialist literature which will facilitate more detailed study and coverage of the additional, rare species not covered in the book.
The book is especially suited to student and amateur use, allowing identification of the majority of marine animals. No other guide is available at this level.

many excellent line drawings make it very browsable ... I wish I'd had it when I was a student ... there is no longer any excuse for not putting a name to most of the shore and shallow-sea creatures found around the British Isles ... the book is ... already indispensable in my library, and will become so for student, anmateur and professional marine biologists alike. ( Sue Scott, BVC Wildlife, December 1995)
its great value lies in its comprehensiveness ... there is excellent coverage, especially of the commoner or more prominent forms ... eminently affordable for any serious worker in the field ... Bought now, your copy, with care, should last you for years. ( J. Exp. Mar. Biol. Ecol. 196 (1996))
All readers will appreciate the publication of this up to date and comprehensive guide to the marine fauna of the seas around the British Isles, at a price that they can afford ... the definitive identification guide to all the common species of British marine invertebrates ... The illustrations are excellent line drawings, so thorough that they can be used to separate species that are almost identical ... The first chapter gives an excellent introduction to aspects of the marine environment ... The concise guide is highly recommended and should be regarded as essential reading and the first choice on your Christmas list.

This handbook is essential for naturalists, students, and marine biologists. ( Coastline 1996)
'...The descriptions are necessarily concise, yet sufficiently clear, as most technical terms are explained in the detailed line drawings (often) on the opposite pages. Information about the preferred habitat of each species is given, as well as the number of taxa known for the are...This book constitutes a practical guide for the carcinologist, while it offers a wealth of information on the taxonomy of various marine animals (birds and mammals excluded) for all those who do not limit their interst to a single group of animals. A book of this class is rarely available at such a friendly price, which makes one suspect it will be sold out shortly.' ( H.P.Wagner, Crustaceana 72 (2), 1998.)
