Media reviews

The photographs we see [here] are at times nearly incandescent...and consistently engaging. The book also touches on the effects of wave action and the role of natural (and man-made) disturbances in the changing ecology on this varied and narrow arena.-Christian Science Monitor; "The photographs do an unusually good job of depicting broad biological concepts."-Library Journal
