The Essential Guide to Beachcombing and the Strandline is a beautiful English book for those who like to search the beach for beautiful finds. People have been visiting the beach since ancient times to collect food, fuel or other useful things and mysterious objects, inherent in our instinct of hunter-gatherer. Whether you are a seasoned beachcomber, a casual visitor or an enthusiastic naturalist, this book will satisfy your curiosity about the treasures found on the beach line. Whether it is a beautiful seashell, an old beach buoy, a seaweed or an exotic seed. With every discovery the questions are: what is it and where does it come from? Every find has a story to tell and this book can answer the questions that the finds evoke. The book contains clear photos and descriptions with information about the biology of the animals and plants that you encounter. Even man-made waste can provide a fascinating introduction to ocean operations and illustrate how objects thrown away in Africa or America can wash ashore on a European beach.
The high-water line is often overlooked as a habitat, but is home to an unique community of flora and fauna, many of which can not be found anywhere else. It is an underexposed biotope that is unfortunately threatened by a variety of man-made causes.
The Essential Guide to Beachcombing and the Strandline is a comprehensive report of the animals and plants that make up this rich oasis in the otherwise harsh environment of the beach. The more we understand the delicate nature of the flood line, the more we can do to maintain and protect it.
But beware: beachcombing can be addictive fun! Make sure you pack this book every time you visit the beach. Whether it is a night-time flood line safari, finding exotic nuts or catching small animals: there is always something new to discover. Immerse yourself in the beachcombing experience; the wind in your face, the smell of salty sea, the roar of the ocean; it is an attack on the senses, the perfect tonic! And The Essential Guide to Beachcombing and the Strandline is your indispensable guide.
