I have just received a pleasant surprise in the mail - Dave Behren's new book entitled Nudibranch Behaviour. It is an excellent addition to any sea slug library, filling in the details on the biology and natural history so tantalisingly brief in most faunal guides. My only quibble, is the deliberate misuse of 'nudibranch' in the title of a book which deals with all sea slugs. I don't agree with Dave's argument on p. 11 that because many underwater naturalists misuse the word that he should do so as well. But that minor infraction is far out-weighed by the valuable information to be found in the book.
