Designed primarily for field study, this book introduces the variety of species living in our diverse coastal setting, from sand dunes to salt marshes. Among the organisms identified are salt meadow hay, comb jellies, pipe fish, ghost crabs, sea cucumbers, and black skimmers. For each habitat, this study explains how organisms adapt to specific surroundings, describing how the various communities develop there, and aids in the identification of the most common species.
