Between Pacific tides by Edward Flanders Ricketts( Book )

19 editions published between 1939 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes the habits and habitats of the animals that live in one of the most prolific life zones of the world--the rocky shores and tide pools of the Pacific Coast of the United States. The intricate and fascinating life processes of these creatures are described with affectionate care. The animals are grouped according to their most characteristic habitat, whether rocky shore, sandy beach, mud flat, or wharf piling, and the authors discuss their life history, physiology, and community relations, and the influence of wave shock and shifting tide level. Though the basic purpose and structure--and much of the text--of the book remain the same, content has been increased by about 20 percent; a multitude of changes and additios has been made in the text; the Annotated Systematic Index and General Bibliography have been updated and greatly expanded (now almost 2,300 entries); more than 200 new photographs and drawings have been incorporated; and an entirely new chapter has been added--a topical presentation of the several factors influencing distribution of organisms along the shore. This edition also includes John Steinbeck's Foreword to the 1948 edition

27 editions published between 1941 and 2009 in English and Swedish and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The collaboration of two friends -- one a novelist, one a marine biologist -- produced a volume in which fascinating popular science is woven into a narrative of man's dreams, his ideals, and his accomplishments through the centuries. Sea of Cortez is one of those rare books that are all things to all readers. Actually the record of a brief collecting expedition in the lonely Gulf of California, it will be science to the scientist, philosophy to the philosopher, and to the average man an adventure in living and thinking." --Amazon.com

Beyond the outer shores : the untold odyssey of Ed Ricketts, the pioneering ecologist who inspired John Steinbeck and Joseph Campbell by Eric Enno Tamm( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1930s, Ricketts was a lone, largely marginalized scientist--an outcast to academia with no university degrees, memberships or honors--and his pioneering ideas were at first dismissed by the scientific establishment. Today he's usually remembered as "Doc," the beer-drinking philosopher-scientist in Steinbeck's Cannery Row, but Ricketts was actually a trailblazing ecologist who did seminal work in the emerging field on the Pacific Coast, and whose ideas, viewpoints and warnings remain timely sixty years later
