About this book

Explore the nutrient-rich habitat of California's enchanted kelp forests through this beautiful four-color book. Beginning with the life cycle and growth of the giant kelp the authors detail the different habitats created by the amber forest from the holdfast and midwater fronds to the surface canopy. Each offers a unique sanctuary for myriad forms of life. Also discussed in Amber Forest are fishing and diving the kelp beds, and harvesting kelp as a source of potash, algin and livestock feed.
