From Ariel Rubissow Okamoto, one of the authors:
“I wanted you to know about my new book, Natural History of San Francisco Bay, recently published by the University of California Press. I like to call it the “kitchen sink” on San Francisco Bay — it’s got everything from rocket science to fish stories (how big was that octopus?) and good old-fashioned government work (federal and state resource agencies, etc).
“The book covers hydrodynamics, climate, species, human history, environmental challenges and restoration frontiers, up and down the watershed, all in 300 pages. PLUS it’s packed with cool photos, diagrams and maps. Lastly, the book describes the work of more than 60 scientists and resource managers and agencies, many of whom participate in IEP, and for the first time in one book, makes those critical links between the creeks, rivers, delta, bay and ocean that we all struggle to follow in this much altered ecosystem.”
