BOOK WRITTEN BY SHARK VICTIM
Shark victim Peter Clarkson co-authored the book “Australia's Spectacular Cowries: A Review and Field Study of Two Endemic Genera--Zoila and Umbilia” with Barry Wilson. Peter also took 100s of the photos in the hardcover book (1st edition 2004), including the one on the front cover. The book is expensive (at more than $100), but some of it can be read online at http://www.amazon.com/Australias-Spectacular-Cowries-Endemic-Genera-Zoila/dp/0966172027#reader_0966172027 . It includes taxonomic indexes to both cowries and sponges.
