Publisher Description:
Published in 1984, the first edition of Life in the Chesapeake Bay became an instant classic, providing fascinating insights into some of the more than two thousand plants and animals that make their home in American's largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay. Superbly illustrated and clearly written, this acclaimed field guide described the richly varied habitats found along the mid Atlantic coast and cataloged more than three hundred species of fish, invertebrates, and aquatic plants commonly found in the Chesapeake Bay and in coastal inlets form Cape Hatteras to Cape Cod. Reflecting a further decade of research, this new edition expands on the Lippsons' discussion of wetland habitats and covers an additional life species closely associated with the Chesapeake Bay, including a broad range of birds and several species of insects, reptiles, and mammals. Written to be useful to a variety of readers - year-round residents and summer vacationers, professional biologists, and amateur scientists, conservationists and sportsmen - Life in the Chesapeake Bay is a unique and comprehensive guide to one of this country's most important and beautiful natural resources.
