"... If there's a budding entomologist in your family, or a beachcomber with a love for bugs, put this book on your gift list right away."

Amy Klarup, Eugene Weekly


"In this book, George Poinar Jr. presents readers with 652 color photographs that provide an unsurpassed guide to birds, insects, and other invertebrates and, in some cases, fungi, and small mammals, associated with various communities, including kelp, driftwood, strand plants, and dune plants...This easy-to-use illustrated guide will allow campers, beachcombers, hikers, and occasional dune visitors to identify sand dune plants and their associated dwellers. This volume is an excellent contribution for anyone interested in learning more about coastal habitats."
