I just purchased "The Reef Set, Reef Coral Identification, Reef Fish Identification, and Reef Creature Identification" by Paul Humann and Ned Deloach.

"Reef Fish Identification: Tropical Pacific" by Allen, Steene, Humann and DeLoach follows the same style as the Caribbean series by Humann and DeLoach. Only fish are covered, though.



"Reef Creature Identification" by Humann & Deloach now available. A good companion for Reef Fish ID.

I should have added "Tropical Pacific" to the above title.

I am looking for ID guides to the Sea of Cortez. Most I have found (2) are really old and taxonomically out of date/accuracy. Anyone know of anything recent?? Slugs are covered. (Doh!)

Cheers,

For the reef fish fanatics, there is a fantastic new book that just came out:

Reef Fishes of the East Indies by Gerry Allen and Mark Erdmann

The book covers 2,600 species with 3,600 color photos and 1,292 pages! Some amazing work if you ask me.
