 ”NEW – FRESH FROM THE PUBLISHER”

By Robert B McCormack

ISBN: 978 0 643 10386 3     - 248 full colour pages

 

Referred to as the ‘Spiny Crayfishes’ due to impressive arrays of spines on their hard armoured shells, Euastacus crayfish are the largest of the 10 genera of Australian freshwater crayfish. This book discusses all 50 species found in Australia, from the iconic giant Murray Lobster that is fished by recreational fishers, to the exceedingly rare and tiny species like Euastacus maidae.

These uniquely Australian species range from Cooktown in far north Queensland to Wilsons Promontory in Victoria. Many are found in or around our major population areas. The book discusses basic crayfish anatomy, moulting and growth, morphology, breeding, threats and diseases. It includes colour photographs for each species, as well as a glossary and further reading list.

A Guide to Australia’s Spiny Freshwater Crayfish will be of interest to researchers, conservationists, land managers, libraries and crayfish enthusiasts.

THE WATERBUG BOOK

The Waterbug Book

A Guide to the Freshwater Macroinvertebrates of Temperate Australia

By John Gooderham & Edward Tsyrlin

240 pages Colour photographs, Glossary, Bibliography, Index

ISBN: 9780643066687    Publisher: CSIRO PUBLISHING

Winner of the 2003 Eureka Science Book Prize and the 2003 Whitley Medal.

Freshwater macroinvertebrates provide a useful and reliable indicator of the health of our rivers, streams, ponds and wetlands. As environmental awareness within the community increases, there is an increasing interest in the need to assess the health of our local waterways and school curriculums are changing to reflect this important ecological trend.

The Waterbug Book provides a comprehensive and accurate identification guide for both professionals and non-professionals. It contains an easy-to-use key to all the macroinvertebrate groups and, for the first time, high quality colour photographs of live specimens. It provides a wealth of basic information on the biology of macroinvertebrates, and describes the SIGNAL method for assessing river health. The Waterbug Book is full of practical tips about where to find various animals, and what their presence can tell about their environment.
