An invitation from Victoria University Press
Spiny Lobsters by John Booth
Thursday October 6th, 6pm, the Hunter Common room, level 2 the Hunter Building,
Victoria University, Wellington.
Here’s a lively account. It’s about the comings and goings, and the doings, of spiny lobsters. Taxonomy, ecology, behaviour, life history, fishery, and so on. It deals with all species, using the packhorse Sagmariasus verreauxi as a template. It is written primarily with a lay audience in mind
—one reviewer described it as ‘a rollicking read’. Yet it also has much to offer the expert of spiny lobsters.
