Animals of the Rocky Shores
It took five years to collect all the right photographs for this little book covering the east coast of South Africa from East London in the south to Kosi Bay in the north. This section of the coast is influenced by the powerful warm Agulhas Current that flows down from the north, bringing with it sub-tropical moist climate so typical to the region.

DETAILS


“ANIMALS OF THE ROCKY SHORES” is an invaluable companion to “THE BEACH BOOK” by the late Jerry Gosnell.


It took five years to collect all the right photographs for this little book covering the east coast of South Africa from East London in the south to Kosi Bay in the north. This section of the coast is influenced by the powerful warm Agulhas Current that flows down from the north, bringing with it sub-tropical moist climate so typical to the region.


The following five tidal zones and the animals they harbour are beautifully described:


Sub-tidal Zone : the area permanently under water


Lower Balanoid Zone : exposure only at low spring tides


Upper Balanoid Zone : exposure twice a day – at low and high tides


Oyster Zone : area only covered with water during high spring tides


Littorinid Zone : the area only reached by exceptionally high tides


An excellent Glossary is provided as well as an Index of common and scientific name
