This work catalogs whole and partial great white shark specimens and live sharks in 26 museums and aquariums in the US. State-by-state entries describe each specimen in a collection and give details on date of capture, size, methods of preservation, and status of the specimen or live shark. A general introduction details the biology, ethology, and ecology of the great white shark. Methods for capturing, preserving, and reconstructing great white sharks are described in detail and illustrated with b&w photos and images on every page. De Maddalena, president of the Italian Ichthyological Society, is the curator of the Italian Great White Shark Data Bank. Photographer Walter Helm, a mechanical engineer, has been photographing sharks since 2001. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
