About The Cover

Aerial photograph of the kelp forest fringing the rocky intertidal zone at Hopkins Marine Station on Monterey Bay, California. Infrared film renders the kelps red. Fish, living in this kelp forest, affect recruitment to the adjacent intertidal barnacle population showing that the dynamics of the two communities are coupled. See page 479.
