Life Between the Tides

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 University of Maine’s Sea Grant program by Les Watling, Jill Fegley, and John Moring, it’s a fact-filled resource, arranged for easy identification, covering habitats, invertebrates, fishes, and marine plants. Andrea Sulzer’s pen-and-ink drawings, carefully done from live specimens, are finely detailed works of art!

"This is a great book to have in your backpack or beach bag..."— Northern Sky News
