The first edition of Sharks and Rays of Australia was published in 1994. This second edition is fully revised, with descriptions of 322 species of sharks, skates, rays, and chimaerids. Since 1994, the Class Chondrichthyes has been extensively revised and the second edition of Sharks and Rays of Australia includes 26 species that have been formally described since the first edition, with formal classification of 97 species that were previously given temporary names. Names of other species have also been revised in light of new knowledge of the systematics within this important group of fish.
