Aquatical Latin

Have you been daunted on a dive boat when other divers refer to the marine life they've seen using the Latin names? This book might be for you. Aquatical Latin looks at the meaning of names (the etymology) and taxonomy of 950 fishes common to tropics, explains the scientific names and pronunciation. After a dive, you could slip into your cabin, bone up and then stun your fellow divers with your new-found knowledge. Written by Tim Hayes, Aquatical Latin is well researched and costs $19.15.
