This book is intended to act as a general introduction to the ecology of communities along the Atlantic shoreline of North America. It is divided into two major components, the first aimed at providing a basic but comprehensive cover of the various factors that govern the make up and dynamics of shoreline communities, and the second at describing the composition of the various types of community that characterize the east coast of temperate North America. Although written principally with undergraduate students in mind, the author hopes to have approached his topic in such a way as to make it interesting to general readers as well.
