About the Authors
  • This unique, concise and beautifully illustrated guide allows students to identify over 650 of the common, widespread animals and seaweeds of the shore. User-friendly dichotomous keys are supported by details of diagnostic features and biology of each species. Now enhanced with 32 pages of colour, this much acclaimed guide is invaluable to students of marine biology at any level. Questions such as how does the species reproduce? What is its life-cycle? How does it feed? are answered in the notes accompanying each species to give a fascinating insight into the diversity and complexity of life on the shore. The text is supported by an extensive glossary of scientific terms and a comprehensive bibliography is included to aid further study. The third edition builds on the excellent reviews of earlier editions and will continue to appeal to a wide readership, including students, teachers and naturalists.

    • A unique guide to both the identification and biology of the common and widespread animals and seaweeds of the shore
    • Detailed notes on the biology of individual species draw together information from a wide range of research
    • This new edition includes: 32 pages of colour images clearly illustrated by excellent line drawings, data from the latest research on the biology of inter-tidal organisms, and an extensive glossary of scientific terms, while the taxonomy has been updated to reflect recent changes based on molecular research
