Leonard Compagno is the author of two volumes of shark catalogues published
in 1984 by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.
These volumes, used extensively by shark scholars worldwide, are out of
print. FAO also published a few synoptic volumes of marine species important
to humans, including marine mammals, sea turtles, and many on different
groups of fishes. -- John F. Morrissey, in an email on March 31,
