There are 80 types of surgeonfishes in the world. Most species are found on coral reefs in tropic seas; twenty four occur in the Hawaiian Islands. This book illustrates all 80 species, many with color photographs of the juveniles as well. Over 300 color photographs along with descriptions of characteristics, distribution, habitat, ecology, reproduction and growth make this the most comprehensive guide to surgeonfishes available.

About the Author:

No one is better qualified to write this book. John E. Randall's PhD thesis was on the classification of the Acanthuridae and the biology of the Hawaiian subspecies of the Convict Surgeonfish. As one of the pioneers of a new generation of scuba-diving biologists, he has contributed more towards the classification and identification of coral reef fishes than anyone during the past century. He has published nearly 600 scientific papers and semipopular articles on marine biology, mainly on tropical marine fishes, as well as guidebooks on the fishes of Hawaii, the Caribbean Sea, Red Sea, Maldive Islands, Great Barrier Reef and Oman.
