Covering the coast from Cape Wrath to Falmouth, this book aims to summarise the extensive information which biologists and geologists have amassed concerning Britain's North Sea coastal margin. There are chapters dealing with geology and geomorphology, coastal habitats, marine habitats, fisheries, rare and protected species, site protection, human use of the coast and information sources. The text is well illustrated by maps, diagrams and nine colour photographs of habitats.
