Sharks in Question
The Smithsonian Answer BookBook - 1989
Sharks in Question is a collective response to the thousands of questions about sharks received annually by scientists at Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. Written in a question-and-answer format accompanied by more than 100 photographs and illustrations, the book provides knowledge for a general audience as well as students of marine biology. Victor Springer provides a comprehensive review of the biology of sharks in three broad divisions: shark biology and evolutionary history, the "supersharks" notable for their life history, size, or temperament, and the interactions between sharks and humans, including the risk of shark attack.
