About this book

This is a replacement for the classic Collins Pocket Guide to the Sea-Shore by J Barrett and CM Yonge, for many years the standard identification reference on the subject. Collins Pocket Guide to the Sea Shore of Britain and Europe describes and illustrates all the common species of plants and animals found on the sea shore – from the highest spring tide to five metres below sea level. It covers the shores of all the Atlantic, Mediterranean, North Sea, Irish Sea and English Channel coasts of Britain and Europe. It is extensively illustrated with paintings (of live specimens), with text facing the artwork. There are simple keys, plus introductory sections to each group.
