The definitive identification guide to the sharks of the world The shark is undeniably the 'lord of the seas', having existed unchanged for 350 million years. Not only is it the biggest of fish, it is also the best equipped for hunting down and destroying its prey. It is capable of living in all waters shallow or deep, tropical or temperate, fresh or salt, and unlike most animals, it has no natural predators apart from the Killer Whale. Set to become a classic natural history title, Collins Field Guide to Sharks describes and illustrates the world's 530 species of shark. Shark families are grouped together and for each individual species there is detailed identification information, and original colour illustration, and a distribution map showing where in the world that species can be found. Covering all aspects of these extraordinary creatures, from their behaviour, breeding, feeding and ecology, right through to the impact of humans on sharks throughout the world, this is one of the most important shark books ever written.

Damien Hirst constantly faces the accusation that he creates merely popular, salable, or easily consumable art. However, this accusation of "selling out" is closely linked to the great popularity that he enjoys. Discussions about the aesthetic value of art and the importance of consumer culture are incorporated into his works and highlight how the artist has been able to exemplify the consumer culture of our age. This study analyzes works from different periods of his oeuvre, such as the Natural History series, the Spot Paintings, the Diamond Skull, and Hirst's collaborations with Street Artist Banksy. They are examined in the context of materials, iconography, and history of ideas with regard to their framing of consumer culture. This is one of few books on Hirst not published by the artist himself or under his influence. In this academic study, Ulrich Blanché also gives a compact overview of the Young British Artists in London in the 1990s.

Der vormalige Young British Artist Damien Hirst und der Street Artist Banksy sind zwei der bekanntesten Vertreter der britischen Gegenwartskunst - ihre Werke im Spannungsfeld von Kunst, Konsum und Popkultur gehören zu den meistbeachtetsten unserer Zeit. Eine systematische Aufarbeitung dieser künstlerischen Positionen und ihrer Bezüge zur Konsumkultur unserer Gegenwart hat jedoch lange auf sich warten lassen. Ulrich Blanché schließt diese Lücke: Er untersucht die Werke der Künstler vor dem Hintergrund der Londoner Kunstszene seit 1980, zeigt Verbindungen zu Duchamp, Warhol oder auch Koons auf und reflektiert die Rolle des Rezipienten, die Bedeutung der »Location« und insbesondere die Bezüge zwischen Kunst, Konsum und Werbung in diesen Werken.

An extensive literature review was carried out for the preparation of this document. A total of 49 sharks, 34 batoids and 1 chimaera are fully treated. The presence of 5 sharks and 2 batoids included in this field guide, need, however, to be confirmed. The guide includes sections on technical terms and measurements for sharks and batoids, and fully illustrated keys to those orders and families that occur in the region. Each species account includes: at least one annotated illustration of the species highlighting its relevant identification characters; basic information on nomenclature, synonyms and possible misidentifications; FAO common names; basic information on size, habitat and biology, distribution, importance to fisheries, and conservation and exploitation status.
