Format: Spiral-bound
This book is more of a biology text for the Florida Keys than a touring guide. And as such it's wonderful, with lengthly and very scientific descriptions of plants, grasses, invertebrates, fish, and turtles. Puffers, we learn, are of the Tetraodontidae family of fish, of which there are 10 genera and about 130 species. Descriptions of the common ones are very detailed. This book is clearly for the serious chronicler of Keys flora and fauna.

There is a good list of dive sites from Key Largo to Key West. The color plates at the end of the book are somewhat helpful, the black and white photos in the rest of the book less so, being black and white. This richly informative book best serves the academic, guides, and other serious students of the minutia of life in the Keyes. Eco-tourists might find Bill Keogh's Paddling Guide or Burnham's Paddling Atlas more useful.

Marsh Muirhead, author of "Key West Explained - a guide for the traveler"

Eco-Touring the Florida Keys is a very informative and user friendly field guide. Not only is the reader given a history of the Keys, recommended dive shops, dive sites but also a list of plant and fish species they are expected to encounter both on land and underwater. This book is a great field guide for tourists or even the advanced diver looking for help identifying a new fish he has encountered. Having spent numerous vacations in the keys, I can honestly say Eco-Touring the Florida Keys has left me feeling more like an expert in Marine Biology then some of my college courses. This book will permanently accompany me on all of my future dives both in the Keys and in South Florida

Eco-Touring of the Florida Keys is a great guide of the local environments and life found in the Florida Keys. For the land lover, a list of great sites (such as parks,refuges, and museums)is provided to keep one busy for their entire stay. For those who want to dive in, the best dive sites are listed with a description of each.

With detailed descriptions accompanied with colorful pictures on the different plant and animal life, one could become familiar with their surroundings.

Being a Marine Biology student, I find this book VERY useful and recommend it to anyone visiting the area. This book will be with me everytime I travel there.

We just returned from another visit to the Keys and we took along this new great guidebook. This book was really helpful for finding some excellent dive sites and also for things to do on land. I recommend this book to tourist visiting the keys and to the natives as well, they may learn something new too!
