Please note, this is a reissue of Green Guide: Seashore Life of Britain and Europe, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers.
Our coastlines are home to a wide range of animals and plants; some that are iconic sights on beaches and others that we only see when we look more closely. The Green Guide to Seashore Life makes identifying them easy for beginners and amateur naturalists alike. Concise descriptions, accompanied by beautiful colour illustrations, include information on appearance, habitat and distribution, and similar species. A detailed introduction includes colour photographs and information on types of seashore habitat, shore zonation, and groups of seashore plants and animals.
Bob Gibbons is a renowned botanist, author and tour leader who is based in Dorset but has travelled across much of Europe and the world in search of wildlife. His previous titles include Wildflower Wonders of the World.
