An amazing rich group for study, the gastropods include slitshells, limpets, turbans, nerites, cowries, helmets, tritons, wendletraps, cone shells, murexes, and many others. No less fascinating are the bivalves such as scallops, oysters, and clams, and the shelled cephalopod known as the nautilus. Here, depicted in 80 full-color photographs, are shells with a stunning range of colors, markings, and textures that are sure to appeal to naturalists and collectors alike.

The fascinating patterns on the shells of tropical sea snails are not only compellingly beautiful but also tell a tale of biological development. The decorative patterns are records of their own genesis, which follows laws such as those of dune formation or the spread of a flu epidemic. Hans Meinhardt has analyzed the dynamical processes that form these patterns and has retraced them in computer simulations. His book is exciting not only for the astonishing scientific knowledge it reveals but also for its fascinating pictures. An accompanying CD-ROM with the corresponding algorithms allows the reader to simulate the natural pattern formation and growth processes.

This book is the product of a long process of poetic evolution. The oldest poem was written more than a quarter century ago; the most recent, mere weeks ago. The book is divided into six sections. Part 1, entitled The Poet, contains the most personal and introspective poems of the collection. Part 2, The Caribbean Homeland, addresses experiences and themes derived from Trinidad, the land of my birth. Part 3, the most extensive, is entitled The North American Experience, and the poems are outgrowths of my experiences in the US which span a period of twenty-eight years. Part four is entitled The Human Condition. The title, I believe, is self-explanatory. Part five, entitled On A Lighter Note, contains half a dozen poems which rely for their effect on humor and refuse to take themselves too seriously. Part six contains ten Haiku, none of which deals with Caribbean themes, unlike the three I include in part two.

The nature of the marine shell fauna of the Caribbean is extremely diverse, seeking shelter beneath the sand of beaches, under the rocks of coastal areas, in the soft deep mud of estuaries, in dark submarine caves, in the thick growths of marine prairies, and under branches of vast coral outcrops. It remains unobtrusive and often difficult to discover. Each species has its geographical distribution and populations vary in size, shape and colour according to environment; some animals migrate seasonally far afield. Tidal movement in the Caribbean is unspectacular other than during the spring and autumn equinoxes when shallow reefs and sand flats emerge briefly. The intertidal zone remains stable and undisturbed, with the exception of the passage of tropical storms and hurricanes, governing the lives of many gastropods and bi-valves.
