Product Details
Chesapeake Bay supports more than 3,600 species of plants, fish and animals, including 348 species of fin fish and 173 species of shellfish. The familiar blue crab is one of thousands of species of animals inhabiting the diverse ecosystems found throughout the region. This beautifully illustrated guide highlights over 140 familiar and unique species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes and butterflies/insects, seashore creatures, trees, shrubs and wildflowers. Also includes a regional map, information on the history of the region and how to protect and restore the bay habitats. It was developed in collaboration with the Chesapeake Bay Gateways & Water Trails Network. A portion of the proceeds are returned to the Network to further its important activities. This lightweight, waterproof, pocket-sized folding guide is an excellent source of portable information and ideal for field use by visitors and residents alike. Made in the USA. Zoologist Jim Kavanagh has made a career out of introducing novices to plants, animals, the sciences and world cultures. In addition to creating over 500 simplified nature guides, he has also authored guides to languages, cities and outdoor skills. An avid traveler and backpacker, Kavanagh’s path has taken him around the world to many remote destinations including the upper Amazon, Africa, Australia, and the Arctic Circle (and this is just the As). He is also the author of a series of state-specific guides to common species and natural attractions and a children's book on evolution.
