Sharks in Question is a collective response to the thousands of questions about sharks received annually by scientists at Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. Written in a question-and-answer format accompanied by more than 100 photographs and illustrations, the book provides knowledge for a general audience as well as students of marine biology. Victor Springer provides a comprehensive review of the biology of sharks in three broad divisions: shark biology and evolutionary history, the “supersharks” notable for their life history, size, or temperament, and the interactions between sharks and humans, including the risk of shark attack.

About the Author:

V. G. SPRINGER is Senior Scientist emeritus at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History.

Review:

“A valuable addition to public and academic libraries.”—Susan Klimley, Columbia University Libraries

“Dramatically and specifically illustrated with color photographs and line drawings, this book reveals scientifically factual answers to questions commonly asked about these fascinating and fearsome creatures. The book concludes with information on how to become a shark specialist.”—School Library Journal

“Traditionally, most books on sharks have been organized family by family, making it difficult for the general reader to get an overall picture of what is known of shark habits and behavior. This book presents research and information in a more readable, accessible fashion, as answers to common questions: What do sharks eat? How fast can sharks swim? Where do sharks live? References to the appropriate scientific literature follow each explanation, and a complete bibliography is provided. The photographs are unusually good, including clear pictures of embryo sharks and species rarely seen. A valuable addition to public and academic libraries.”—Library Journal
