This field guide features 63 species of sea stars in the nearshore subtidal community of the Aleutian Islands, Alaska, an understudied region because of its remoteness, adverse weather, and rocky bottoms that inhibit collecting. The book is the result of sea star collections made during 840 scuba dives throughout the Aleutians by the authors, plus observation and research, and includes several recently described species.
