A field guide to marine flora and fauna of the British and the north-west European seashore, this work covers the identification of organisms, the ecological life cycle and gives a description of each species. It covers more than 500 plants and animals. The opening chapter deals with the shore environment. It is designed to provide an introduction, references to more advanced reading being provided at the end of the section. The bulk of the book is given over to a systematic coverage of the common plants and animals of the shore with emphasis on the biology of the species included. Each group of organisms is prefaced by a statement of characteristics and where appropriate the classification of the group is given. There are also suggestions and tips for project work.
