Seaweeds of Queensland
Queensland has one of the most attractive coastlines in the world, with sandy beaches, rocky shores, coral reefs and offshore islands. Increasingly, residents and visitors want to be able to "put a name" to what they see in this fascinating environment.
Corals, fish and other animals in this marine environment are becoming more familiar. Now there is the opportunity to learn to recognise the plants in this marine habitat - the seaweeds.
Seaweeds of Queensland is by Dr Alan Cribb, a retired lecturer and research scientist with more than 45 years of experience in studying seaweeds and other plants. The 130 pages are lavishly illustrated with 168 colour photographs; these, with the notes indicating important features of the plants and their habitats, will enable the reader to identify most of the prominent seaweeds along our shores and coral reefs.
The book is published by the Queensland Naturalists' Club Inc.
