Synopsis

A Student's Guide to the Seashore by J. D. (University of Wales, Aberystwyth) Fish, S. (University of Wales, Aberystwyth) Fish

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.

Reviews

'... recommended unreservedly for indoor-based identification work and as a preliminary source of information on the life-cycle and ecology of individual seashore organisms.'
The Glasgow Naturalist
