Book presentation Pengetahuan Biologi Laut di daerah Batuley: Sebuah ilustrasi ensiklopedia / Marine Biology Knowledge in Gwatle Kal: An illustrated encyclopedia. By Sonny Djonler.

The  shallow seas extending from the east coast of the Aru Islands have long contributed to world markets for pearl oyster, sea cucumbers, and other marine resources. At this eastern fringe, the Batuley make their livelihood harvesting these resources. In his recent book authored together with Dr Ross Gordon, Sonny Djonler details the extensive terminologies of the Batuley for marine biota and for the complex seascape environment in which they live. In this short book presentation, Djonler presents Pengetahuan Biologi Laut di daerah Batuley: Sebuah ilustrasi ensiklopedia published in 2016 by Yayasan Pustaka Obor.
