Event description

Description

Keith Hiscock will talk about his latest book, Britain's Hidden World. He says of it:

"The biology of the shallow seas around Britain have been studied and described for over 200 years but it is only in the last 50 or so years that we have truly been able to see and illustrate the communities of marine life that occur there. It was time to bring that information together in a sumptuously illustrated book which also explains something of the ecology of those habitats and species. The presentation will give some insights into where information comes from, what my involvement has been in drawing that information together in a structured way, and where I have visited to collect the colour images. There will be hints and tips on underwater photography and a wish list for the future."

Tickets are free, but you will have a chance to contribute to the Wembury MCA Advisory Group which helps fund the educational resources of the Wembury Marine Centre. A £2 donation is suggested.
