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.
