Underwater photography highlights this exploration of the world of the seashore, featuring photographs of shells, seaweeds, anemones and rock-pool fish. The accompanying text describes the creation of coastlines, and the variety of plants, fish, crustaceans and birds that live here.
This fascinating book reveals how the anatomy and behaviour of seashore animals and plants enable them to live in and out of salt water and to survive being pounded by surf buffeted by the wind and dried by the sun.
