By looking at the habitats of the coastline, it focuses on key species you are likely to find. The book explains how these organisms have adapted, and how they are able to cope with the environmental stresses of the seashore. With more than 400 color photographs, the guide looks first at the physical and biological features that determine our coast before surveying the variety of communities that exist on shores, including rocky shores, sand and mud, estuaries, salt-marshes, sand dunes, shingles, and plankton. Aimed at naturalists, environmentalists, photographers, ecologists, and seaside communities, this beautiful guide is a reference book readers will want to keep close when exploring the shore.
