The seashore and shallow seas of Britain and Europe support an enormous diversity of plant and animal life, which can make identification a bewildering task for the naturalist or beachcomber.
In this book the author has provided accounts of the form, habitat and distribution of many of the more common marine species and these, coupled with the highly detailed colour plates, will enable even the complete novice to put names to the seashore life he is most likely to find.
The thoroughly researched text and superb, true-to-life illustrations make this one of the most valuable and attractive guides to field identification ever produced.
