Animals of Sandy Shores PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Animals of Sandy Shores free pdf The assemblage of animals living in sandy shores is richer than it might first appear, and it offers wonderful opportunities for ecological explanation without the need for expensive equipment. This book introduces the natural history of the community and provides keys that will enable readers to name the animals they find. It provides practical approaches for behavioural and ecological studies, including the survey and monitoring of populations. Local investigations of this kind form an essential basis for planning the conservation of sandy shore habitats, which are important both in their own right and as feeding grounds for birds. This is a digital reprint edition of the book originally published in 1994 with ISBNs 0855462949 (hbk)
