The books are titled: ‘Field Guide to Fishes in Iran’s Inland Waters’ by ecologist, ichthyologist, limnologist, virologist and expert in bioinformatics Asghar Abdoli; and ‘Field Guide to Spiders and Scorpions of Iran’ by arachnologist and taxonomist Alireza Zamani.

The two works were unveiled on January 16, among other books released by Iranshenasi Publication at Saraye-Ahle-Qalam in Tehran, a cultural forum affiliated to the Book House Institute.

The guide on fishes contains the latest information about marine vertebrates in the country’s inland waters.
