Abstract:

"This richly detailed book presents in plain language what scientific research and close observation over many years have revealed about common animals and plants of New Zealand shores and estuaries. Crabs, starfishes, shellfish, seaweeds and salt marsh plants, fishes and other "animals that dont look like animals" from all over New Zealand are included. Particular emphasis is placed on the hidden world at our doorstep -- the shore when it is covered by the rising tide, when the creatures are most active. Ecology and life history of the animals and plants are also vividly described ... The most up to date research findings have been added to this extensively revised edition ..." -- Back cover.
