This is the ultimate reference source on pearl oysters and the culture of pearls, written and edited by a number of scientists who are world experts in their fields. .Comprehensive treatment of pearl oyster biology and pearl culture .Written by the top world authorities .Highly illustrated and figured .Of practical relevance to a broad readership, from professional biologists to those involved in the practicalities and practice of pearl production
