All you want to know about seashore,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Student's Guide to the Seashore (Paperback)
If you want to do marine biology, especially if you include field trips, even more especially if it's in the Aberystwyth area, this is an extremely useful book.
Students at Aber have been able to benefit from the knowledge of Fish and Fish for years, and here that knowledge is written down.
Filled with keys to help you recognise the species, which can all look very similar to the less informed (we students etc), and with plenty of info on habitat, major features, similarities shown to other species, even some information on specific life cycles.
Divided into phylogenetic order, this shows you seaweeds, sponges, worms of more types than anyone hopes to see, anemones, mollusc, anelids, and much more.
And if you own this, and happen to visit the Aberystwyth area, you could pop in the university and visit the authors (if they're not working)in the biology building!
