Where to learn more about sharks

Shark Biology and Conservation

By Abel, Grubbs & Pullen

ISBN: 9781421438368

A fantastically in-depth book, perfect for students interested in a text-book style resource for their studies. This is the book I wish I had when I was first studying shark physiology! 
Very well written, with just the right amount of wit, humour and entertaining anecdotes, to make a very detailed book an easy read. 
Probably a bit challenging for those who do not have a science background though.


Sharks of the World

By Ebert, Dando & Fowler

ISBN: 9780957394605

A visually beautiful and incredibly informative book! If you want to learn more about shark biology, ecology and conservation, as well as be able to identify all 536 different species of sharks, this is the book for you! Published in 2021, this is THE most up-to-date book I have found. However, it is large and weighty, so if you are looking for a field guide, I would recommend the previous pocket-sized editions by these authors.


Pocket Guide to Sharks of the World 

By Ebert, Dando & Fowler

2nd Edition ISBN: 9780691218748

A fabulous field guide for identifying different species of sharks.

Whilst very small and compact, this guide has a lot of detail, and is very informative regarding shark biology and ecology.

It is also very beautiful, with magnificent illustrations of each species.

If you are looking for a more extensive, meaty volume, I would recommend the new text-book edition by these authors, which is much larger; including more species and more information about shark ecology and conservation.


If Sharks Disappeared

By Lily Williams

ISBN: 9781250171382

The perfect book to introduce your children to shark science. 

Not only is this book dazzlingly beautiful, it is also incredibly informative. Packed with detail and well-researched facts, this is the ideal way to introduce complex ideas about shark ecology, taxonomy and trophic cascades in a way that will not be intimidating or boring for your little ones.
