Sea Cucumbers of British Columbia, Southeast Alaska, and Puget Sound
Author: Philip Lambert
Format: Paperback
  • Sea cucumbers have inhabited the world's oceans for about 400 million years. They live in almost any marine habitat, from the fine ooze of the deep ocean to current-swept reefs and rocky shallows. These marine invertebrates are related to sea stars and sea urchins and they are an integral part of our coastal eco-system.

    This is the first handbook devoted to sea cucumbers in the waters of British Columbia, southeast Alaska and northern Washington.

Sea Stars of British Columbia, Southeast Alaska, and Puget Sound
Author: Philip Lambert
Format: Paperback
  • In this expanded and revised edition of Sea Stars of British Columbia, originally published in 1981, Philip Lambert describes 43 species and subspecies of sea stars in the coastal waters of northwestern North America. Lambert has expanded the geographic area to include the region from Glacier Bay in southeastern Alaska to the waters of Juan de Fuca Strait and Puget Sound of northern Washington. The sea star fauna of this region is the most diverse of all the temperate waters of the world. The great age of the Pacific Basin, and the varied habitats along this complex coastline, created by scouring glaciers and other natural forces, have stimulated the evolution of many new forms.

    Although he covers the coastal waters down to 200 metres below the surface, Lambert lists 26 more species that live below 200 metres and 14 others that occur just outside the region covered by this book.
