Students and naturalists are not only interested in which species live on the seashore but also about their biology. How does a particular species reproduce? What is its life cycle? A Student's Guide to the Seashore is a unique, concise, illustrated guide to both the biology and identification of over 600 common and widespread shore animals and plants. In this new edition, for the first time, simple keys are included to allow accurate identification, and each species is beautifully illustrated by the author's line drawings. Together with concise summaries of diagnostic features, and notes on biology, this is the first comprehensive guide to the seashore giving a fascinating insight into the diversity and complexity of life on the shore. An extensive glossary of scientific terms and complete bibliography ensure that this book will be the premier biological text and identification guide for many years to come.
