From the back cover: “Packed with vivid colour photographs, illustrations, recipes, and comprehensive scientific information for over 150 species of seaweeds found in the Pacific Northwest, this easy-to-use guidebook is an essential resource for gourmet foragers, marine biologists and anyone interested in beachcombing. Seaweed is the form of sea life most commonly encountered by visitors to the seashore, which may account for the fact Pacific Seaweeds sold over 10,000 copies in its first edition. This expanded second edition contains more than 100 new photos, a new section on common shore plants, many newly discovered species and updated species descriptions. Including habitat and distribution details as well as photos and diagrams to aid identification, Pacific Seaweeds documents every aspect of seaweed life, from basic biology to the essential roles seaweeds play in the marine ecosystem and in our everyday lives.” Written by Louis D. Druehl & Bridgette E. Clarkston, 320 pages. Listed price includes the cost of shipping, and all purchases help support Newport’s historic lighthouses. Thank you!
