Synopsis

The Author has condensed virtually everything that is known about the great white sharks that are preserved in European museums in this book. Available data of 105 great white sharks from 45 institutions is presented herein. Most material consists of taxidermied specimens and jaws. Most specimens with known capture locations come from the Mediterranean Sea. The majority of specimens are very old. The jaws belonging to the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan, dated from at least 1640-1660, are the oldest white shark material preserved in Europe. The largest specimens of which parts are preserved in any European museum may be those of which skeletal parts are preserved in the Museo di Anatomia Comparata of Rome, Italy, and the Museo Zoologico "La Specola" of Florence, Italy. The cast of a 5.65 m female great white shark preserved in the Musee cantonal de Zoologie of Lausanne, is the world's largest that has been reconstructed directly from a whole specimen. The largest skin-mounted specimen is a 5.22 m female preserved in the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale of Trieste. The 1.5

0 m female preserved in the Senckenberg Forschungsinstitut und Naturmuseum of Frankfurt is the smallest taxidermied white shark preserved in Europe. The publication also includes a concise general account of white shark evolution, anatomy, physiology, reproduction, feeding, attacks on humans and fishery. Up-to-date literature references are included. Extensively researched, this encyclopedic account is enhanced by many photographs and drawings, that bring to life the extraordinary world of the great white shark. The ease of reading of the book and its thoroughness will make it a welcomed addition to any naturalist's library.

Great White Sharks Preserved in European Museums 21. Dezember 2011
Von Sky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I debated for month's on whether to spend $60.00 on this book. I finally did and I'm very sorry.
It wasn't worth it. It wasn't even worth half the price. It didn't have half the information I was led to believe it did.
I was going to order Great White Sharks in United States Museums at the same time. I'm glad I didn't.
The book description also said "The publication also includes a concise general account of white shark evolution, anatomy, physiology, reproduction, feeding, attacks on humans and fishery. I found no concise general account of attacks on humans at all. I will never buy another book from this author. Save your money.
