If you've ever walked along a beach or rocky shore and peered, poked or wondered at the things cast upon it by the waves, this book is for you. Beaches are our windows to the ocean, and the objects we find on them tell stories about life, death and dynamic processes in the sea. Beachcombing will help you to understand what you find on beaches, and the intriguing reasons these objects and organisms have come to be there.

Ceridwen (Crid) Fraser grew up in Australia and spent childhood summers poking around in rockpools along the New South Wales south coast. She developed a deep attachment to the ocean and the fascinating critters that live in and around it, and decided at the age of 11 to become a marine biologist. She has worked in Belgium and Australia, and today is an associate professor in the Marine Science Department at the University of Otago.
