Chesapeake Bay Nature of the Estuary has become the definitive field guide to the Chesapeake. Flora and fauna descriptions are arranged according to the bays nine major habitats – from freshwater wetlands to saltwater marshes. The most important field marks of more than 500 species are shown in 350 superb pen-and-ink drawings, which make this benchmark work as beautiful as it is useful.
Chesapeake Bay Nature of the Estuary is designed as a user-friendly introduction to the natural history of the Chesapeake Bay. Scientific jargon is kept to a minimum. Illustrations and text are paired to present an easy-to-use primer on the estuarine system. The book takes an ecological approach to life above and below the Chesapeakes surface. Wetland and aquatic communities are emphasised.
