The Indo-Pacific is the most diverse marine biogeographic province but still much underexplored and understudied. Most identification guides cover the western Pacific Ocean while the Indian Ocean is comparatively poorly covered by authoritative books.
Therefore, I got quite excited when I spotted this volume, and my expectations have not been disappointed. Indeed, this is a massive 500+-pages A4- format book covering more than a thousand species belonging to all classes of shelled molluscs. The book derives from intense sampling efforts by the authors and enjoys the support of taxonomic experts resulting in the kind of authoritative books on the Indian Ocean that is so desperately needed.
