Dive Chronicles - Pygmy Seahorses

My article 'Pygmy seahorses - A Case Study in Marital Bliss?......Not Quite!' is in the new issue of the US magazine Dive Chronicles - The Digest of Diving.  I talk about some of the amazing behaviours I have seen these tiny fish get up to and obviously there are plenty of pictures including fighting and birthing pygmies!

Sport Diving issue 129 - Patterns of Diversity

My article entitled 'Patterns of Diversity' has been published in the new issue (129) of Sport Diving Magazine which is available throughout Australasia.  It explores the biodiversity of tropical reefs and the reasons for the patterns found across the world.  I find this subject fascinating and I hope you do too!

FiNS issue 7.3 - A Photographer's Responsibility

My new article 'A Photographer's Responsibility' is published in the new issue of FiNS.  This is quite a controversial subject but, I think, very important.  Often photographers have a very bad reputation for damaging the reef and traumatising its inhabitants.  I find these habits quite distressing and completely unnecessary so was compelled to write this article.  I hope you enjoy it and it gives you something to think about.

FiNS issue 7.3 - Bargibant's & Denise's Pygmy Seahorses

My column 'Really Richard?' continues, this time helping distinguish between two species very dear to me - Denise's and Bargibant's pygmy seahorses!  If I happen to be on a trip with you there will be no excuse for not knowing the difference!

Sport Diving issue 127 - Seahorses

Just an update on my new article on the biology of seahorses and pipefish titled 'A Case Study in Martital Bliss' which is currently on the shelves throughout Asia and soon in Australia in Sport Diving Magazine.  This fascinating group have really amazing reproductive behaviours so have a read!
