?The Pacific Northwest coast between Oregon and British Columbia is one of the richest areas in the world for intertidal life. Winds and currents act to continuously dredge up cold nutrient-rich waters from below. The plant life contained in these waters flourishes when exposed to the sun, and the plants attract plant-eaters and so on up the food chain. This Duraguide reveals the types of beaches you might encounter in the Pacific Northwest - such as the rocky shores, sandy shores, mudflats, or cobblestone beaches - and the plants and animals that are common and widespread.

Zoologist Jim Kavanagh has made a career out of introducing novices to plants, animals, the sciences and world cultures. In addition to creating over 500 simplified nature guides, he has also authored guides to languages, cities and outdoor skills. An avid traveler and backpacker, Kavanagh's path has taken him around the world to many remote destinations including the upper Amazon, Africa, Australia, and the Arctic Circle (and this is just the As). He is also the author of a series of state-specific guides to common species and natural attractions and a children's book on evolution.
