Atlantic Shorelines:
Natural History and Ecology
Mark D. Bertness

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]


"This book is not another field guide to the seashore. Instead, it is a general introduction to the ecology of the Atlantic coast of North America with its predominance of rocky shores in the north and extensive salt marshes in the south. Although written primarily for students, I wish to recommend this excellent book also to investigators of other environments which have strong gradients such as from dry to wet land or the slope of high mountains."--Karsten Reise, Basic and Applied Ecology

"The reader will discover many new examples not contained in less recent volumes, even if they are not working on North American Atlantic shorelines. As someone who has a life-long interest in this general area I am pleased to have it on my library shelf."--Dave Raffaelli, Fish and Fisheries
