Overview


The New England coast between Maine and Rhode Island is one of the richest areas in the world for intertidal life. Winds and currents act to continuously dredge up cold nutrient-rich waters from below. The plant life contained in these waters flourishes when exposed to the sun, and the plants attract plant-eaters and so on up the food chain. This guide reveals the types of beaches you might encounter in the Atlantic Northeast – such as the rocky shores, sandy shores, mudflats, or cobblestone beaches – and the plants and animals that are common and widespread. Made in the USA.
