Between the Tides in Washington and Oregon

Exploring Beaches and Tidepools

A spectacular variety of life flourishes between the ebb and flow of high and low tide. exist some of the most vibrant ecosystems on Earth. Anemones talk to each other through chemical signaling, clingfish grip rocks and resist the surging tide, and bioluminescent dinoflagellates—single-celled algae—light up disturbances in the shallow water like glowing fingerprints.

This guidebook is perfect for beachgoers who want to understand the hidden workings of the natural world of the shoreline. Richly illustrated and accessibly written, Between the Tides in Washington and Oregon illuminates the forces that shape the diversity of life at each beach and tidepool.

Features include

• profiles of popular and off-the-beaten-track sites to visit along the Greater Salish Sea, Puget Sound, and Washington and Oregon coasts
• the fascinating stories behind both common and less familiar species
• a lively introduction to how coastal ecosystems work and why no two beaches are ever alike
