~ Roy John, Canadian Field Naturalist, Vol 130, No 2, 2016
"If you’ve ever wondered about the names of seaweeds that have washed up on shore, this is the guide to reach for. Of the several methods employed by the authors to aid your identification efforts, one of the most clever is the way seaweeds are photographed... What plainly comes through in this book is that the authors are enthusiastic and passionate about these plants of the sea."(National Outdoor Book Awards)
