Book Review

[First paragraph(s)...]
Marion and Prince Edward Islands are amongst the least well known of all the subantarctic islands so it is a pleasure to see this large volume which goes far towards filling the gap. It is unusual today to find a publication covering almost the whole field of natural history and yet maintaining a high scientific standard. This volume is in the tradition of the reports of the famous European scientific expeditions of almost a century ago and is a welcome companion to Chilton's "Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand" and the recent publications on Antarctica.
