About this book

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.
