When we think of a seashore, we usually imagine golden sandy beaches, but the seashores around Ireland are far more varied than that. They range from sand to shingle, from smelly mudflats to razor sharp rocks. The animals and plants living there are even more varied, thought it may take more than a quick look to find them. This book will help you in your search and identification of those creatures. The book is divided into three sections; the first gives you general information on the seashore, and the various living conditions of animals and plants on different shores. The second part has information and diagrams of animals and plants in each group, together with photographs, which will help you identify some of the specimens you might find on the shore. The final section gives an explanation for some of the more unusual but important words throughout the book. With the help of this pocket-sized guide, beginners of all ages will be able to explore the wonders of marine life found on the beaches of Ireland.
