Publisher Comments:

Abundant close-view photographs and detailed descriptions of seashells fill the National Audubon Society Pocket Guide to Familiar Seashells of North America, yet the guide is designed to be slim enough for beach enthusiasts to easily bring along when beachcombing. This streamlined volume contains; a simple field guide covering 80 common seashells found in the North America from shores along the Pacific, the Gulf Coast and Atlantic, a basic overview of the shells divided into the three major groups--gastropods, chitons and bivalves, covering seashell features helpful in identification, tips on where to look for shells; the basic equipment useful in seashell-hunting and text on the different life cycles of the animals which inhabit them.

This pocket guide is brimming with information; detailed photographs and an illustrated table of various shell groups; information about the range and natural habitats of different seashells; the family and class each individual shell species belong to, facts for the shell-collector including commercial value of certain shells and a glossary of technical terms.

Whether you are a casual beachcomber, a serious shell-collector or just interested in the seashells you find in the sand, the National Audubon Society Pocket Guide to Familiar Seashells of North America is a handy reference guide to bring along on your next trip to the beach.
