An exhaustive scientific survey of the marine and coastal habitats found along the Saudi Arabian portion of the Gulf, an area covering some 1200 miles of diverse coastline (including islands) from Ra’s al-Khafji on the Kuwaiti border in the north to Ra’s Abu Qamis on the border with the UAE in the south; also included is an in-depth chapter on the history of the region. Scarce: Copac traces two copies in UK libraries, with OCLC adding just four in libraries worldwide.
