Riassunto: This delightful book is one of the first three volumes of Oxford University Press's new Pocket Guide European natural history series. The series fills the need for lighter weight guides for those who want to find out about the common organisms they come across during countryside excursions without having the specialist knowledge required to make detailed species identifications. All the books in the series are attractively designed and generously illustrated with plentiful high quality colour line drawings and photographs throughout. The accompanying text is short but informative, with notes on general biology as well as on identification. Small Freshwater Creatures covers the more common 'creepy-crawlies', fish, and amphibians likely to be encountered by pond- and stream-dippers. They are arranged by animal group and also by the place they might be found, whether in on floating leaves or in the depths, in polluted or clean water. Sections on the animals' ecology, a glossary, and on further reading will allow the book to be used as a springboard for further study.
Lars-Henrik Olsen is author of many books on animals and wildlife, as well as historical novels. He has worked in the exhibitions department of the Zoological Museum, is a founder member and former leader of the Worldwide Fund for Nature's Panda Clubs, and has been employed by Danish television since 1979 as a professional consultant and adapter of nature films. Illustrators: Jakob Sunesen studied graphics and illustration at the School of Applied Art, works as a portrait and nature artist. Bente Vita Pedersen studied at the School of Applied Art and is a book illustrator, portrait and landscape artist.
