The Ecology of Sandy Shores provides the students and researchers with a one-volume resource for understanding the conservation and management of the sandy shore ecosystem. Covering all beach types, and addressing issues from the behavioral and physiological adaptations of the biota to exploring the effects of pollution and the impact of man's activities, this book should become the standard reference for those interested in Sandy Shore study, management and preservation.

- More than 25% expanded from the previous edition- Three entirely new chapters: Energetics and Nutrient Cycling, Turtles and Terrestrial Vertebrates, and Benthic Macrofauna Populations- New sections on the interstitial environment, seagrasses, human impacts and coastal zone management- Examples drawn from virtually all parts of the world, considering all beach types from the most exposed to the most sheltered
