Between Pacific Tides

Written by Edward F. Ricketts. Jack Calvin & Joel W. Hedgepeth; revised by David W. Phillips

Between Pacific Tides has assumed an iconic status as a textbook of marine biology. Everyone identifies Ed Ricketts as the model for "Doc" in Steinbeck's "Cannery Row". Between Pacific Tides is a classic work of marine biology; a favorite for generations. This revised edition describes the habits and habitats of the animals that live in o­ne of the most prolific life zones in the world--the rocky pools of the Pacific Coast of the United States. Ricketts' depiction of the richness of the Pacific tidal zone highlights the necessity to preserve this trove of biodiversity.
