Showcases the vibrant ecosystems sustained by South Carolina's waterways; Sure to foster a greater appreciation for South Carolina's waterways as well as a desire to conserve them for future generations, The South Carolina Aquarium Guide to Aquatic Habitats of South Carolina introduces readers, hikers, boaters, reachers, and students to the remarkable beauty and complexity of the state's wetlands. With almost a quarter of its acreage covered by water, South Carolina is a small state distinguished by biological diversity and an extensive range of habitats. This guide, written in an engaging and easy-to-read style by two experienced naturalists, tells the story of water's inexorable movement from mountains to coast, and of the abundant plant and animal species that benefit from its many stops, starts, and backtrackings along the way. Underscoring the fact that the state's streams, rivers, lakes, swamps, marshes and estuaries form a single, interrelated system, Pete Laurie and David Chamberlain explore the particular wetland habitats in each of South Carolina's five physiographic regions. They describe habitats as varied as waterfalls, blackwater swamps, and tidal creeks and as distinctive as Carolina bays. The guide includes illustrations of flora and fauna, maps of the region, and suggested sites to visit throughout the state. Written primarily to link the exhibits of the South Carolina Aquarium to the natural habitats they represent, The South Carolina Aquarium Guide to Aquatic Habitats of South Carolina is an ideal companion for any exploration of the state's natural areas.
