Text English. All known data and features to enable an identification of sharks of the genus Carcharhinus (Blainville, 1816) are summarised in this book. The species are difficult to separate for non specialists. Includes identification key. For each species coloured figures illustrate lateral and ventral views, detailed view of nostril and teeth, and in some cases of juveniles and special characters. Data on body size and appearance, colouration, tooth formula and shape, numbers of vertebrae, plus other internal and external characters, distribution, habitat and food spectrum are provided. Information on biology and reproduction are also included, e.g. number of young, size at birth, size at maturity, as well as behaviour and migrational patterns. Most of the previous works about Carcharhinus list a maximum of 30 species. In contrast, this field guide describes 33 species.
