This beautiful little field guide by leading marine scientists will help you identify and learn about the many plants and animals of the intertidal zone of northern New England and the Maritimes. Don’t go to the water’s edge without it!
Maybe you simply enjoy walking along the beach, searching the wrack line and exploring tidepools. Or you fish or hunt in salt marshes and estuaries and are interested in all that surrounds you. Perhaps you're an educator or volunteer along the coast. Here's a beautifully illustrated little field guide that will help you identify and learn about the many plants and animals of our intertidal zone. Written for the Maine Sea Grant Program, it's a fact filled resource, arranged for easy identification, covering habitats, invertebrates, fishes, and marine plants and seaweeds. Andrea Sulzer's pen-and-ink drawings, carefully done from live specimens, are finely detailed works of art.
