Abstract
  • The Oceanbook focuses on the ocean environment from the coastline to roughly 200 miles offshore, the limit of U.S. jurisdic-tion, and from Cape Mendocino, California, to Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We excluded the intertidal area of interest to low-tide beachcombers from the Oceanbook because this area is well covered in other publications. We have organized the Oceanbook to reflect the structure of the marine ecosystem. After a brief introduction to Oregon's marine ecology, we include a discussion of the physical setting within which all marine life exists. These living marine resources vary from small and simple floating plants to increasingly large and more complex animals which swim freely through the ocean. We conclude with birds and mammals, many of which depart the sea to the shore for a portion of their lives. Virtually all topics of the Oceanbook beg for expansion, and so we have attempted to exercise care in deciding what to include and what to leave out. Moreover, there is much important information yet to be gathered to improve understanding. To try to satisfy the unending need to know, the Oceanbook includes further references on particular topics at the end of each chapter.
