Brackish water can be found wherever sea water is diluted by freshwater to form water of intermediate salinity. The ephemeral habitats of estuaries, coastal lagoons and inland seas are rich in fauna, but are threatened by rising sea levels, drainage and reclamation of low lying coastal land, storms and sea defences. This is the first identification guide to the fauna of these ecologically important areas. The ecology of these animals and their habitats are examined and reviewed. The keys are designed to be used with living material, and illustrations are provided for all species likely to be found in brackish-water habitats in northwestern Europe, making identification easy. Fieldworkers, naturalists and students interested in these fragile and ephemeral habitats will find this an indispensable reference.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Fieldworkers, naturalists and students interested in Europe's coastal fringe will find this an essential reference work.' Bryan Sage, Countryside
"...this book has many merits and presents a valuable and useful addition to the brackish-water literature. It places a real working tool in the hands of the professional biologists, the undergraduate student on field courses, and the keen naturalist exploring these fascinating habitats alike. Particularly the paperback edition represents good value for money and anyone purchasing it will soon find his copy well-thumbed." Thomas Schlacher, Estuaries
"...the author achieved to cover most species in one book and brackish-water ecologists need books like this for fast and efficient identification of animals. Therefore it belongs in the library of any field worker in brackish-water areas of Europe." Andreas Roepke, Bulletin of Marine Science
"The book will be valuable to field workers, naturalists, and students interested in these water habitats and their fauna....all can find value here." T.L. Hufford, Choice
