For those of us who can't go there in person, we can enjoy a vicarious visit by perusing the Atlas of Coastal Ecosystems in the Western Gulf of California
by Markes Johnson and Jorge Ledesma-Vasquez. This geological vignette is but an apophoreta for what remains to be studied and described in the rest of the Gulf. Coastal researchers should be grateful for the editor's masterful approach to the region and thorough explanations of the limestone deposits on the margins of this young sea.
—Charlie Finkl, Journal of Coastal Research
The book provides a lot of material for theoretical considerations by geologists, palaeontologists, geographers, ecologists, and biologists as well as many nice examples for teaching. [It] also enables the readers with a good methodological framework, which can be employed in similar multi-disciplinary investigations in the other parts of the world.
