Smith, Brian J.

The guide introduces the reader to the Tamar River and intertidal ecology. The main part of the book is devoted to the common families found in the region with descriptions and notes on habitat, biology and distribution.  The Tamar River is one of the major estuaries of Australia and is tidal for over 63 km from Low Head where it enters Bass Strait running SSE to the city of Launceston.  The river is tidal over its entire length with an approximate six hour flood tide and seven hour ebb.  All the animals and plants that inhabit the intertidal zoe must spend some time submerged in sea water and some time out of water in the air.
