With beautiful color photographs and text, this book explores living seafloor habitats found off the coast of Alaska.
Marine animals are sensitive to the environment: salt concentration, amount of light, temperature, current, prey availability, and the community of organisms around them. Alteration of any of these features can result in reduced diversity and abundance, or the complete elimination of organisms that are not resilient to natural or human changes.
From coastal waters to mysterious offshore environments, Living Marine Habitats of Alaska provides a glimpse into the wide diversity of the North Pacific and Bering Sea habitats and ecosystems. Published by Alaska Marine Conservation Council and Alaska Sea Grant.
