Anyone who spends time beside the sea knows there's a wealth of 'treasure' to be found, be it natural or manufactured, living or washed up. Beachcombing in South Africa is a friendly guide to the seashore's rich pickings.

Short chapters such as Floaters and drifters, Sea-beans, Sponges, Eggs and egg cases, and many more, detail what can be found and how to interpret or identify specimens. Items may reveal links to activities or biological events in the nearby ocean - or, perhaps, thousands of miles away. They may relate to human activities, such as fish or bird tagging, or be oceanographic instruments separated from their moorings. Or they may be part of the growing menace of flotsam and jetsam from the planet's burgeoning human population.

This book will enhance the experience of beachcombing, satisfy curiosity about finds, and contribute to a better understanding of the life in our oceans and along our shores.

East Africa is known for its diverse landscapes - expansive savannas, lakes, and towering mountains - but also for its numerous protected areas: its parks and reserves that are the domain of the continent's most spectacular wildlife.

Numerous colour photographs of animal and plant life.
Detailed park maps, indicating places of interest and best sites to view key species.
Text panels with highlights, facilities and activities, wildlife facts, and important alerts.

Sea Change takes you on an evocative journey into the secret life of an almost unknown ecosystem; the beautiful kelp forest of Southern Africa. Craig and Ross spent eight years exploring this sea forest together, diving almost every day. This is the story of what they found in the wild, and how it has transformed their lives.
CRAIG FOSTER is an award-winning filmmaker and avid naturalist. He has received over sixty international awards, including the Golden Panda, the “Oscar” of natural history filmmaking. He grew up foraging and diving on the Cape Peninsula and for the past eight years has pledged to dive in the kelp forest 365 times a year. Craig has worked closely with some of the world's top kelp forest biologists, archaeologists, anthropologists and San rock art experts. He also spent many years studying with master San bushmen trackers in the Kalahari and it is from these experiences that he formed his underwater tracking method. This is his fourth book.

ROSS FRYLINCK has been exploring the South African coastline as a surfer and free-diver for most of his life. He started the Wavescape Ocean Festival, and has been pioneering ocean conservation and culture in South Africa for the past 15 years. He was once a commissioning editor for Cambridge University Press, and has been telling stories about the sea since his first school essay..

Here's another batch of David Muirhead's unrespectable creatures, following his successful earlier volume of hilarious animal accounts (The Bedside Ark ). It offers a wealth of accurate information on each of the profiled creatures, while revealing their softer sides and the near-human frailties from which they suffer - and temptations for which they fall. Delightful, humorous pen-and-ink sketches accompany many of the stories.

Muirhead's mix of humour, mythology, anecdotal tales and folklore builds quirky and captivating portraits of each animal, and makes for a lighthearted, funny - as well as illuminating - read.

This new anthology, offering something different from the standard collection of animal CVs, will appeal to anyone interested in humorous writing and the natural world, no matter their age (from teen to adult) or level of knowledge.

A page-turning story of a bizarre and shocking crime, and one man's relentless quest for justice.

Who is Edwin Rist? Genius or Narcissist? Mastermind or Pawn?

One summer evening in 2009, twenty-year-old musical prodigy Edwin Rist broke into the British Museum of Natural History. Hours later, he slipped away with a suitcase full of rare bird specimens collected over the centuries from across the world, all featuring a dazzling array of priceless feathers.

Kirk Wallace Johnson was waist-deep in a river in New Mexico when he first heard about the heist, from his fly-fishing guide. When he discovered that the thief evaded prison, and that half the birds were never recovered, Johnson embarked upon a years-long worldwide investigation which led him deep into the fiercely secretive underground community obsessed with the Victorian art of salmon fly-tying.

A page-turning story of a bizarre and shocking crime, The Feather Thief shines a light on our fraught relationship with the natural world's most beautiful and valuable wonders, and one man's relentless quest for justice.

Originally published in 1981, Living Shores was for many years the standard reference for marine science students but was also embraced by a popular market for its fascinating insights into marine and coastal habitats and the life they support. After a long absence, this classic has been revived and thoroughly reworked to incorporate the many dramatic changes that our oceans and coasts have undergone over the past few decades.

This book is the first of a two volume set, and examines the different marine ecosystems and how humankind interacts with them. It discusses the evolution of the sea and continents and looks at the ecology of coastal systems, including intertidal zones, beaches, dunes, estuaries, islands, kelp forests and reefs. The book unpacks the relationship between humans and the marine environment, and the consequences of harvesting and mining to meet our needs. It also addresses the impact of climate change, and highlights what can be done to protect our environment.

Richly supported by full-colour photography and numerous explanatory illustrations, diagrams and graphs, this book will prove invaluable to students and teachers but will also appeal to anyone with a fascination for nature and our marine world in particular.

Populations of cities have grown at unprecedented rate, consuming ever more land, placing severe strain on the environment and also on cash-strapped governments. Nature needs to be reintroduced to our cities.

This book is focused on urban nature conservation, aspects that will resonate with advisors to local government, people interested in bringing back nature to our cities and anyone with a keen interest in nature.

Our ecosystems are under threat and green infrastructure needs to be better managed so that there will be less fragmentation and habitat loss. All of us have to live more towards a sustainable urban nature environment. This book guides all of us how to address nature on our doorsteps. There are 214 photos, 6 tables and 25 illustrations on principles of urban nature conservation.

The book informs how to participate and synchronise lifestyles to contribute to sustainable urban nature environments. Urban wetlands, watercourses, riparian zones, buffer zones, ecological corridors and functions are explained. The annexures in the book described owl boxes, bird feeders, earthworm bins and how to produce organic compost. What is important is that more and more people move to cities and city developments encroach upon nature areas. These encroachments can be managed to accommodate ecologically sensitive urban nature areas. These areas can be utilised in ways that it will benefit the environment people live in.

Die verhaal van lewe & die omgewing - 'n Afrika-perspektief handel oor die brose wonder van lewe. Dit is 'n viering van die aarde se ryke, wonderlike verskeidenheid - die spesies, bevolkings, gemeenskappe en ekostelsels wat ons omring - en van die natuur se veerkragtigheid. Dit vertel van die drie hoofekostelsels: varswater, oseane en land, en al die lewe wat hulle in en om Afrika onderhou. Dit bespreek evolusie en die eindeloos vertakkende boom van lewe; hoe stelsels werk, hoe bevolkings toeneem en afneem, en hoe al die elemente van lewe op mekaar inwerk. En dit vertel die verhaal van die oorsprong van die mens in Afrika, en hoe ons tot moderne mense ontwikkel het. Die boek waarsku teen ons menslike invloed op die planeet en die vinnige klimaatsverandering wat dit aanhelp, asook teen massiewe oorbenutting en die uitputting van hulpbronne. Die boek gaan ook oor verantwoordelike beplanning en bestuur van ons omgewing en natuurlike hulpbronne om skade te herstel en volhoubaarheid te verseker. Dit is die verhaal van lewe en die omgewing in Afrika.
