A Handbook To Australian Seashells by Barry Wilson

01 / 11 / 2013

On Seashores East To West And North To South.

Have you ever strolled along a seashore picking up shells and wondered where they came from? This book will help you to identify most of the shells you find, no matter where you are on the Australian coast. It includes over 375 species of the most common seashells found along our seashores. Each one is illustrated with a beautiful colour photograph showing its colours, patterns, shape and sculpture.

Seashells are the homes of strange little creatures collectively known as molluscs. The introductory section describes what they are, how and where they live, what they eat and how the reproduce. It explains how the shells are made and grow. Detailed illustrations show mollusc body and shell parts and shapes, and the terms used to describe them. Some also show how the shell fits on an animal.

Some shells contain animals which are dangerous and should be left alone. These are indicated. There are also some simple tips on how to prepare shells for your collection.
