With over 1,700 colour photographs of over 1,400 saltwater plants and animals, it is an essential addition to any natural history library. It is designed to allow the reader to recognize virtually any coastal organism that might be commonly encountered from southern Alaska to central California - from sea lettuces and feather boa kelp through to the leopard ribbon worm, Pacific red octopus, spiny-thigh sea spider and gutless awning-clam.
