Everyone's heard of the Great Whites. But most people know little of the hundreds of other types of sharks that inhabit the world's oceans. Written by two of the world's leading authorities and superbly illustrated by wildlife artist Marc Dando, this is the first comprehensive field guide to all 440-plus shark species. Color plates illustrate all species, and detailed accounts include diagnostic line drawings and a distribution map for each species. Introductory chapters treat physiology, behavior, reproduction, ecology, diet, and sharks' interrelationships with humans.


  • More than 125 original full-color illustrations for fast and accurate identification of each shark family

  • Over 500 additional drawings illustrating physical features from different angles

  • Clear identification information for each species with details of size, habitat, behavior, and biology

  • Quick ID guide helpful for differentiating similar species

  • Geographic distribution maps for each species

  • For professional and amateur shark enthusiasts

From the Back Cover:

"This exceptionally well-produced book, written by the leading authorities on shark systematics and conservation, is the only stand-alone field guide that covers all known shark species of the world. It is therefore an invaluable reference for shark scientists and enthusiasts alike. Nowhere are the identification, distribution, and conservation status of sharks more clearly presented."--Professor Dr. Marcelo R. de Carvalho, researcher of shark and ray evolution, Universidad de São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto, Brazil

"The first field guide to cover all species of sharks, Sharks of the World is a welcome addition to the field bags of both professional and amateur naturalists. Filling a role heretofore satisfied only by owning a series of regional field guides, this volume offers one stop shopping for worldwide shark aficionados. Sharks of the World is a must-buy for anyone interested in identifying sharks."--George H. Burgess, Florida Program for Shark Research, Florida Museum of Natural History
