Description

Join Andrew Crowe in solving the mysteries of beachcombing. The puzzling flotsam and jetsam - both common and strange - is shown here and explained with clear, life-size colour photographs.
Besides providing a simple introduction to New Zealand geology, this book's new approach to the beach shows:
*Pebbles and sand from around the country
*How to recognise common animal tracks found in the sand
*Jellyfish, starfish, crabs and bones from the sea
*Eggs from the sea and invertebrates living in the sand
*Seaweed, plant wash-ups and even common rubbish pollution
Part of Andrew Crow's original award-winning Life-Size Guide series, this book is designed to be both simple and practical for all the family.
