1 Randall, John E Reef and Shore Fishes of the South Pacific: New Caledonia to Tahiti and the Pitcairn Islands
0824826981 / 9780824826987 New
2004. 30cm. Pp.720. 2018 colour photos. Hardbound.

The South Pacific has long been in need of a comprehensive guide to reef and shore fishes. Reef and Shore Fishes of the South Pacific covers the inshore fish fauna of New Caledonia, the Loyalty Islands, the southern Gilbert Islands (Kiribati), Tuvalu, Fiji, the Wallis Islands, Tonga, Samoa, American Samoa, the Tokelau Islands, the Phoenix Islands, the Cook Islands, the Austral Islands, Rapa, the Society Islands, the Tuamoto Archipelago, the Marquesas Islands, and the Pitcairn Islands.

It contains accounts of nearly 1,500 species of fishes, illustrated with more than 2,000 colour photographs, taken mostly underwater, (a few drab species are illustrated by only black and white photographs or drawings). Species accounts are headed by the English common name, the scientific name, the author or authors who described the fish, and the date of the description. This is followed by a concise list of the characteristics needed to identify the species, the total length it attains, its distribution, habitat, and in summary form what may be known of its biology. More than 600 references are given for those seeking more information on individual species. The introduction contains a two-page colour spread of the main external features of fishes. An extensive glossary of scientific terms precedes the index.

2 Randall, John E & Alfredo Cea Shore Fishes of Easter Island
0824835646 / 9780824835644 New
2011. 26cm. Pp.176. Colour photos. Hardbound.

The total number of Easter Island shore fishes known to a depth of 200 metres is only 139 species. However, an astounding 21.7 percent are known only from the island, second only to the Hawaiian Islands in the percentage of endemic fishes. Forty-four new species of fishes have been described, of which 25 are in scientific papers by Randall or by Randall and coauthors. Shore Fishes of Easter Island puts all of these fishes in one beautifully illustrated book.

Price: 38.50 GBP
3 Randall, John E Shore Fishes of Hawai'i, New Edition
0824834275 / 9780824834272 New
2010. 25cm. Pp.232. 475 colour photos. Paperback.

First published in 1996, this new edition of "Shore Fishes of Hawai'i" updates our knowledge of Hawaiian fishes and has been expanded to include 372 species. The most important characteristics to identify a fish are given as well as the size attained and its distribution. Each species account begins with the common name, followed by the Hawaiian name (when known), and the scientific name. Because it is necessary to use some scientific terminology when giving the principal diagnostic characteristics of families or species of fishes and what they eat, a handy glossary appears at the back of the book.

Price: 22.95 GBP
