The seashore is unlike any terrestial habitat, and the plants and animals that occur on it are usually very different in form from their land-based relatives. This illustrated mini field guide is packed with information on nearly 180 species that live in the area between land and sea called the intertidal, or littoral, zone. It includes all the most common molluscs, crustaceans, seaweeds, fishes, spiny creatures such as starfishes and sea urchins, mammals and many other species found here.
All the species are illustrated with full-colour artworks, and a concise written account for each covers data such as size, general description, habitat, ecology, and distribution in Britain and the near Continent.
Also included is a foldout insert with at-a-glance illustrations showing comparisons between similar-looking species.
