NATURAL HISTORY OF SAN FRANCISCO BAY: ENVISIONING MYTH AND HISTORY

BY ARIEL RUBISSOW & KATHLEEN WONG

Join this month’s naturalist book club as we discuss the Natural History of San Francisco Bay. This edition of the California Natural History Guides, published by the University of California Press, is very close to China Camp’s salt-marshy heart. Authors Ariel Rubissow and Kathleen Wong provide a comprehensive overview of the San Francisco estuary; its ebbing tides, geological origins, and the impact human development has had on the bay’s complex biodiversity.

Excerpt from Bayariel.com:

This book, part of the California Natural History Guide series, includes over 300 pages of text, color photographs, maps and charts. At its most basic level, Natural History of San Francisco Bay tells the reader what lives in the Bay, how its waters move and change, and whether it is safe to swim in or eat fish caught from the Bay. On a deeper level, it offers an overview of how the Bay became the most altered and invaded estuary in the world, describes how history has shaped its present shores, and explores how recent generations of activists and scientists have rekindled interest in the Bay’s current and future health.”
