The Ecology of Sandy Shores provides a one-volume resource for understanding the conservation and management of the sandy shore ecosystem. Covering all beach types, and addressing issues from the behavioral and physiological adaptations of the biota to exploring the effects of pollution and the impact of man's activities, The Ecology of Sandy Shores should become the standard reference for those interested in Sandy Shore study, management and preservation.
