Pacific Reef and Shore

A Photo Guide to Northwest Marine Life

Including everything from whales and seals to oysters, crabs, nudibranchs and seaweeds, readers will find a comprehensive overview of Pacific marine life in this easy-to-use pocket guide.

Book Description

Still compact and the perfect size for travelling, Pacific Reef & Shore has been updated with new species, up-to-date scientific information and many brilliant photographs of the more than 300 common plants and animals found in the intertidal zone off the coast of North America—from the Aleutian Islands, Alaska, to Point Conception, California. Each entry includes a description summary with information on size and habitat, and a photo for species verification, giving readers an overview of local sea life without weighing them down as they explore the shore.

The world's oceans contain mysteries that scientists are discovering every day. While the depths of the Pacific may seem a world away, the intertidal zones are at the fingertips of any diver, kayaker or beach stroller curious about the various plants and wildlife that dwell there. Lightweight, inexpensive and accessible, Pacific Reef & Shore is the indispensable reference for any curious visitor to the shore.
