Having studied sharks for some 30 years, Milan-based De Maddalena is one of Europe's foremost experts; he has written 14 books about sharks and produced 800-plus drawing and paintings of sharks and cetaceans for various publications. His latest book provides accurate scientific information for a broad, non-technical readership, as well as biologists, in an effort to increase appreciation for these misunderstood creatures. Coverage includes the biology and ecology of sharks, classification of the 33 species inhabiting New England's waters, species identification, and species profiles. Each profile lists the order, family, genus, maximum size, size at birth and at maturity, embryonic development, gestation, litter size, maximum age, distribution areas in New England and in the world, and descriptions of the morphology, coloration, teeth shape, dental formula, diet, habitat, behavior, threat (if any) to humans, and special notes. The work is illustrated with b&w and full-color photographs and diagrams. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
