This new edition of the Field Guide is invaluable for anyone walking around the shores and saltmarshes of the Knysna Estuary, South Africa’s environmentally most important and beautiful estuary. Take it with you on your walks and beach outings and you will be able to identify and learn about the creatures that live there, the seaweeds and saltmarsh plants.

The Guide is practical and easy-to-use and clearly illustrated with full colour photographs. It is suitable for both young people and adults and will provide a ready answer for parents and grandparents faced with inquisitive questions, or who want to encourage their children to take more interest in what they find. Schools will also find it a great help for their natural sciences courses and eco clubs.

The photographs are clearly marked with both the common and scientific names and the Field Guide includes a section for recording what you find.
