Originally published in 1981, Living Shores was for many years the standard reference for marine science students but was also embraced by a popular market for its fascinating insights into marine and coastal habitats and the life they support. After a long absence, this classic has been revived and thoroughly reworked to incorporate the many dramatic changes that our oceans and coasts have undergone over the past few decades.

This book is the first of a two volume set, and examines the different marine ecosystems and how humankind interacts with them. It discusses the evolution of the sea and continents and looks at the ecology of coastal systems, including intertidal zones, beaches, dunes, estuaries, islands, kelp forests and reefs. The book unpacks the relationship between humans and the marine environment, and the consequences of harvesting and mining to meet our needs. It also addresses the impact of climate change, and highlights what can be done to protect our environment.

Richly supported by full-colour photography and numerous explanatory illustrations, diagrams and graphs, this book will prove invaluable to students and teachers but will also appeal to anyone with a fascination for nature and our marine world in particular.

Populations of cities have grown at unprecedented rate, consuming ever more land, placing severe strain on the environment and also on cash-strapped governments. Nature needs to be reintroduced to our cities.

This book is focused on urban nature conservation, aspects that will resonate with advisors to local government, people interested in bringing back nature to our cities and anyone with a keen interest in nature.

Our ecosystems are under threat and green infrastructure needs to be better managed so that there will be less fragmentation and habitat loss. All of us have to live more towards a sustainable urban nature environment. This book guides all of us how to address nature on our doorsteps. There are 214 photos, 6 tables and 25 illustrations on principles of urban nature conservation.

The book informs how to participate and synchronise lifestyles to contribute to sustainable urban nature environments. Urban wetlands, watercourses, riparian zones, buffer zones, ecological corridors and functions are explained. The annexures in the book described owl boxes, bird feeders, earthworm bins and how to produce organic compost. What is important is that more and more people move to cities and city developments encroach upon nature areas. These encroachments can be managed to accommodate ecologically sensitive urban nature areas. These areas can be utilised in ways that it will benefit the environment people live in.

The latest in the bestselling 'Life and Love of' series by Lewis Blackwell. Since time immemorial, humans have been captivated by water. No wonder: it's the most omnipresent substance on Earth and without it life itself would be impossible. From the plankton that provide more than half of our planet's oxygen to the blue whale, life in the ocean greatly affects life on land and plays a crucial role in regulating our climate and atmosphere.
Combining images from world's leading marine and nature photographers, and the latest in underwater photography techniques, the bestselling author of The Life & Love of Trees and Rainforest, Lewis Blackwell, explores our innate relationship with the sea - from when our ancestors first emerged from the primordial soup to the sophisticated marine farming industry of today - and why our future depends on preserving and protecting our planet's single biggest ecosystem.

Lewis Blackwell has worked as a leading author, editor, and creative director in photography, winning international recognition for his talks, exhibitions, and books. Blackwell is the author of the bestselling The Life & Love of Trees, The Life & Love of Cats, The Life & Love of Dogs, and Rainforest. He was for many years the creative head of Getty Images, the world's largest photographic agency, and prior to that was editor in chief and publisher of Creative Review magazine. He now combines his work in the photographic industry with pro bono work in environmental areas.

Die verhaal van lewe & die omgewing - 'n Afrika-perspektief handel oor die brose wonder van lewe. Dit is 'n viering van die aarde se ryke, wonderlike verskeidenheid - die spesies, bevolkings, gemeenskappe en ekostelsels wat ons omring - en van die natuur se veerkragtigheid. Dit vertel van die drie hoofekostelsels: varswater, oseane en land, en al die lewe wat hulle in en om Afrika onderhou. Dit bespreek evolusie en die eindeloos vertakkende boom van lewe; hoe stelsels werk, hoe bevolkings toeneem en afneem, en hoe al die elemente van lewe op mekaar inwerk. En dit vertel die verhaal van die oorsprong van die mens in Afrika, en hoe ons tot moderne mense ontwikkel het. Die boek waarsku teen ons menslike invloed op die planeet en die vinnige klimaatsverandering wat dit aanhelp, asook teen massiewe oorbenutting en die uitputting van hulpbronne. Die boek gaan ook oor verantwoordelike beplanning en bestuur van ons omgewing en natuurlike hulpbronne om skade te herstel en volhoubaarheid te verseker. Dit is die verhaal van lewe en die omgewing in Afrika.

Die veldwagter stap saam is nie 'n tradisionele veldgids in die sin dat dit tot in die fynste besonderhede verduidelik hoe om 'n spesifike plant of dier te identifiseer nie (alhoewel die teks tog nuttige wenke gee om uitkenning te vergemaklik )Die doel met hierdie boek is eerder om te dien as 'n persoonlike gids of veldwagter tydens 'n besoek aan die Laeveld.
