5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to Seashore ecology. 2 Aug 2001
The only reson I bought this book wasthat I have a firthcoming marine fieldcourse at University. So I thought I betterknow at least the basics of seashore life, which this book capably provides. The book has is a great introduction to seashore ecology and is well suited for beginners like myself. The introduction to the book is concise, comprehensivewith simple diagrams and descriptions provided for easy identification. Along with sensible information regarding safety, conservation and equipment required. The guide is easy to follow, with very little jargon used. The use of accurate and aesthetically pleasing diagrams accompanied by conscise descriptions allows for easy identification. Other useful features of the book include: it's convenient size, space at the back for notes, useful advice regarding further reading(e.g. Collins Pocket Guide: Seashore of Britain and Ireland, the Hamlyn guide to seashores and shallowseas of Britain and Europe.)and useful adresses for people who may wish to take a more active role in conservation or field studies. Overall a great informative book for anyone who visits the seashore regularly or has an interest in the basics of seashore ecosystem ecology. With this book being excellent value for money.

I was born by the sea and for most of my life I have lived by the sea. As a biologist I know quite alot about the sea. Now I am retired I walk my dogs by the sea every day of the year whatever the weather.

I don't know about you but I have a habit when I am walking on the beach of looking at everything just in front of my feet; I have time to do that now. It's really amazing what you can find, not just once in a while, but everyday. On my beach at Bacton , Norfolk there are fossils, semi-precious stones, even amber, that I pick up and take home to polish in my tumbler polisher. There are washed up creatures from the sea, often I know what they are, things like mussels, starfish and whelk shells. But now that I really have time to look I notice a multitude of other things: the many types of seaweed, the different types of mussels, and then the tiny things amongst the the jetsam and flotsam of the tideline, amazing little creatures like sandhoppers and sea slaters. Now I didn't know what all these other things were, and being inquisitve,I wanted to know, so naturally I looked for a suitable pocket sized book to help me. That's when I discovered,"Seashore Life of Britain and Europe" (Green Guide) by Bob Gibbons. As an introduction to life on Britain's seashores it can't be bettered and if your thirsty for more knowledge there's good advice for further reading witin this excellent little pocket guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat, well-informed and handy 19 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a really neat little book, very well-researched, with clear pictures. I liked it because it fits in the map pocket of my waterproof, so you can use it on the move and compare what you're seeing directly.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a bargain !!! 18 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a quality book The details of what you can find on our beaches is unbelievable. I bought the book as a present for my three favourite girls and they are over the moon, all they want to do now is go to the beach with the book in hand and study what is lurking beneath the rock pools. I think that this book is the best 2.99 that I have ever spent.
