*Hinton, Sam. Seashore Life of Southern California, new and revised. 1988. University of California Press: CA

This book remains a classic reference for identification of tidepool organisms in southern California.

 

*Kozloff, Eugene N. 1973, 1983, 1993. Seashore Life of the Northern Pacific Coast: An Illustrated Guide to Northern California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. University of Washington Press: WA

Kozloff’s book is a classic and a bible for anyone who studies intertidal and coastal organisms in the Pacific Northwest. Professor Sean used this book when he took Kozloff’s Marine Biology class at the University of Washington and it has been one of his favorites ever since. Kozloff’s insights and anecdotes on marine organisms, accompanied by his encyclopedic knowledge, blend to create an outstanding book for identifying and learning more about marine life.

 

*Ricketts, Edward F., Jack Calvin, and Joel Hedgpeth. 1992. Between Pacific Tides, 4th Edition. Stanford University Press: CA

This classic book was first published in 1939 and revised through the years. It remains an outstanding reference on the habitats and ecology of marine organisms inhabiting the intertidal region of Pacific shores.

 

 

*Rosenfeld, Anne Wertheim, with Robert T. Paine. 2002. The Intertidal Wildnerness: A Photographic Journey through Pacific Coast Tidepools, Revised Edition. University of California Press: CA

Professor Sean took a marine biology course from Bob Paine, an icon in the field of marine biology and one of the finest instructors in the field you will ever find (if you can keep up with him). This book provides photographs and descriptions of the many species of marine organisms you may encounter in a Pacific Northwest tidepool. It also includes a good amount of description of the ecology of these organisms. With ample references and archetypal photos, this book makes an outstanding reference and popular guide.

Viles and Spencer take an ecosystem approach to directly address a number of coastal problems. This book is a very nice complement to other coastal-related books.
