Living Shores is a pivotal work on southern Africa’s shores and oceans, published originally in 1981. It reprinted 9 times but finally went out of print because it became dated. This comprehensively revised edition will now be published across two volumes. Volume 1 deals with coastal habitats – sea; rocky shores; sandy beaches; kelp beds; estuaries; open sea – and with marine management. Volume 2 will deal with the numerous animal and plants groups that inhabit these different ecosystems. Highly regarded and widely used in the academic and scientific worlds, this book, with its lively, fascinating text and multiple colour images will also appeal to lay enthusiasts.
