Description
Tidepools and rocky shores are among the most physically stressful environments on earth; waves at high tide can pound plants and animals, while at low tide the same organisms may dry up and bake in the sun. Yet despite their seeming inhospitality, tidepools and rocky shores host remarkably complex and diverse ecosystems. From Abalones, Barnacles, and Climate Change to Seagrasses, Tides, and Wind, the articles in this illustrated encyclopedia discuss the animals and plants that live in tidepools, the physics and chemistry of the rocky shore environment, the ecological principles that govern tidepools, and many other interdisciplinary topics.

"The Encyclopedia of Tidepools and Rocky Shores covers much more than one might guess.... The editors have managed to get some of the best scientists in the world, the absolute experts in their fields, to write the articles. The relatively short length of each entry also makes this book an ideal source for assigned readings to accompany marine biology, ecology, or oceanography classes, laboratories and field trips."—Ken Sebens
