Philip's Guide to Seashores and Shallow Seas Summary

Philip's Guide to Seashores and Shallow Seas by Andrew C. Campbell

Philip's Guide to Seashores and Shallow Seas is an easy to use and beautifully illustrated identification guide to marine life.Seashores and shallow seas are one of the most diverse natural environments, rich in plant and animal life. They are also among the most visited, attracting everyone from beachcombers and anglers to sailors and divers. Many who visit the sea take a strong interest in the wildlife found there, and this book provides a comprehensive and accessible guide.More than 1000 species are described in this book. For each species there is an account of the form, size, habitat and distribution. These combined with detailed and life-like illustration enable even the complete novice to easily identify a wide range of flora and fauna. It is a 'must have' for students of marine biography and oceanography, and for collectors of shells and other seashore remnants.Identification is assisted by an illustrated identification key in the introduction, which also describes the marine and seashore environment, explains the impact of the tides, and discusses conservation. Important groups of animals also have their own introductions.The illustrations are by James Nicholl, one of Britain's foremost biological artists.The author, Dr Andrew Campbell, is a senior lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences at Queen Mary College, University of London.Main map scale:
