Although We Speak Generally Of The Seashore It Is Not Just One Habitat But Several, Depending On The Type Of Substratum: Rocky Shore, Shingle Shore, Sandy Shore, Midst Shore, Because Each Supports Its Own Particular Communities. The Various Factors Which Control These Communities Are Tides, Desiccation, Temperature, Substratum, Wave Action, Salinity And Light. It Is Desired To Stress The Unity Of Ecology And The Necessity For Including The Influence Of Plants And Animals As Well As The Physical Forces As Part Of The Environment. The Potential Scope Of Ecology Is Very Great, And No Attempt At Any Exhaustive Treatment Of The Subject Is Made Here.This Book Consists Of Twenty Six Chapters On Various Aspects Of Seashore Ecology.
