“This guide to coastal ecosystems of the Atlantic Coast is different from many other publications called “guides…” [I]t provides much useful information about the overall ecology of the different coastal environments and on the ecology, reproduction, and behavior of the organisms. The primary goal of the book, as explained by the author, is to describe how coastal environments function and to discuss the roles played by various species in these environments. And this he does very well.” –Quarterly Review of Biology.
