Neville Coleman is one of Australia's most accomplished underwater natural history authors.
He was born near the shores of the Lane Cove River in Sydney. In 1969, he conducted the "Australian Coastal Marine Expedition", a total of almost four years travelling 64,000 kilometres around the Australian coast, observing, recording, photographing and collecting many thousands of marine creatures.
Since 1973, Neville has cross-referenced approximately 150,000 transparencies with specimens of marine animals and plants donated to Australian museums.
The Australasian Marine Photographic index of which he is curator, is the largest scientifically-curated visual identification system in the Southern Hemisphere, with over 11,000 species photographed and catalogued.
Neville is the author of 50 books on marine life and his articles have been carried by over 150 magazines with photographs being reproduced by the National Geographic Society, Time-Life and Reader's Digest.
