Zach "Dr. Jaws" Nicholls
Dr. Jaws is a brand of shark books and media that hybridizes art, science, philosophy and ocean lore into comprehensive presentations of U.S. Atlantic shark species. Created in 2012 by Zachary Webb Nicholls (College of William & Mary, B.S. Biology, ?14) , Dr. Jaws has since expanded into a series of seven books, a podcast (Sharks & Coffee), an educational lecture circuit (Sharks of the Chesapeake) and an extensive collection of sharky tweets, posts and videos on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Dr. Jaws is recognized as an ?informal educator? by both the National Marine Education Association (NMEA) and its Mid-Atlantic chapter (MAMEA), and has been internationally incorporated into schools, aquariums and expos in the United Kingdom, South Africa and Hong Kong.
Combining 175 years of scientific discipline with a timeless adherence to Romantic, aesthetic, and existential tradition, The Bull Shark Compendium brilliantly explores the science, culture, and philosophy surrounding one of the world?s most legendary creatures: the commanding Carcharhinus leucas.
Beginning in 1841 with M?ller & Henle?s first description of the species, The Bull Shark Compendium tours 193 scientific papers featuring Carcharhinus leucas via a remarkably concise but informative two-page format: The Page of Science (left) and The Page of Conjecture (right). The Page of Science?s fully cited abstracts, introductions, attack records and other key documents of Bull Shark discovery (spanning from 1841 to 2016) are seamlessly complemented by the Page of Conjecture?s profound meditations on the beauty, transcendence, and power of nature.
Embrace the Legend of Surabaya, the shamanic shark traditions of ancient North America, the ?undocumented attacks? of Lake Nicaragua, and more from the stories and traditions of thirty-one contributing cultures. Discover one of the richest collections of Bull Shark science available, spanning the fields of genetics, cladistics, behavior, ecology, paleontology, parasitology, and many other specialties from across the globe.
With its compelling hybridization of disparate but powerful disciplines, The Bull Shark Compendium is a must for serious lovers of sharks and marine science, and begs the essential question of its subject: what is the Bull Shark in itself?
