Most widely held works by Joel W Hedgpeth
Between Pacific tides by Edward Flanders Ricketts( Book )

31 editions published between 1939 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes the habits and habitats of the animals that live in one of the most prolific life zones of the world--the rocky shores and tide pools of the Pacific Coast of the United States. The intricate and fascinating life processes of these creatures are described with affectionate care. The animals are grouped according to their most characteristic habitat, whether rocky shore, sandy beach, mud flat, or wharf piling, and the authors discuss their life history, physiology, and community relations, and the influence of wave shock and shifting tide level. Though the basic purpose and structure--and much of the text--of the book remain the same, content has been increased by about 20 percent; a multitude of changes and additios has been made in the text; the Annotated Systematic Index and General Bibliography have been updated and greatly expanded (now almost 2,300 entries); more than 200 new photographs and drawings have been incorporated; and an entirely new chapter has been added--a topical presentation of the several factors influencing distribution of organisms along the shore. This edition also includes John Steinbeck's Foreword to the 1948 edition

This report provides a historical perspective of a Pacific coast estuarine system-Willapa Bay. The intent of the report is to stimulate estuarine research in an area which is relatively undisturbed. Of particular interest is the importance or value of marshes, tideflats, and eel grass beds to estuarine fisheries and waterfowl. The research findings as determined for Willapa Bay could be applied to other Pacific Northwest estuaries for coastal problems and decision making
