Publisher Description

A compact, user-friendly field guide to
50 of the most prominent and ecologically significant animal species of
the west coast, from British Columbia to Northern California.


A
keystone species is an organism that defines and supports an entire
ecosystem, filling a vital ecological niche. Without these species, the
ecosystem would be radically altered or even collapse. This pocket-sized
field guide by bestselling naturalist Collin Varner highlights 50
keystone birds, mammals, amphibians, insects, fish, shellfish, and mollusks found across the Pacific Northwest bioregion—including the American
Crow, Bald Eagle, American Beaver, California Sea Lion, Sea Otter,
Orca, Coyote, Grizzly Bear, Giant Pacific Octopus, Chinook Salmon,
Pacific Tree Frog, Pacific Banana Slug, Mixed Bumblebee
, and more.
Each entry features clear photography, etymology, descriptions, habitat
information, risks and warnings. This convenient and easy reference is
perfect for casual walkers, hikers, campers, beachcombers, sailors,
paddlers, and whale watchers, and draws awareness to the importance of
conservation and protection of these crucial species.
