Life in the Chesapeake Bay is the most important book ever published on America's largest estuary. Since publication of the first edition in 1984, tens of thousands of naturalists, boaters, fishermen, and conservationists have relied on the book's descriptions of the Bay's plants, animals, and diverse habitats. Superbly illustrated and clearly written, this acclaimed guide describes more than two thousand plants and animals and their habitats, from diamondback terrapins to blue crabs to hornshell snails.
Now in its third edition, the book has been updated with a new gallery of thirty-nine color photographs and dozens of new species descriptions and illustrations.
'Praise for the first edition' "Handsome, generously illustrated...All of the Bay's richness is catalogued here."--'Washington Post Book World' "A story book, a field guide and a reference work, and anyone interested in fishing, ecology, or our bay should own it."--'Baltimore Sun' "This is the best-written and best-illustrated guide ever about a North American tidal estuary. It is the model for all future coastal nature guides."--'Whole Earth Review'
