This review is from: A Student's Guide to the Seashore (Paperback)
I have long been interested in the seas & seashore and wanted a book that would help me to identify some of the myriad of plants and animals that i have seen on and around our shores. Well this book fits the bill nicely !. perhaps not ideal for a complete beginner it is cetainly ideal for those who know a little about marine life. From the minute i picked it up I was fascinated and absorbed and my interest has been increased hugely by the insights gained from the book. It is helpful for identification of many many species of molluscs, worms, crustaceans,starfish etc etc, listing a huge number of species, not just the most common ones. It also gives a fascinating insight into the life cycles,habitats,breeding patterns and biology of an imense range of species.
The book will be useful for students and divers as well as those who simply have an interest in the sea life of Britain.
All in all a reccomended buy
