New York Harbor's vast network of moving or placid, fresh, brackish, and saltwater still holds a startling variety of marine life whose past, present, and future Waldman surverys in this exemplary and compact work of popular ecology. Sometmes describing his own trips through creeks and up inlets, in the manner of John McPhee, Waldman explains what sorts of marine life live in and near the Hudson, the East River and the Meadowlands, how engineering and shipping have affected them and how dicreased pollution arund New York has allowed various species to begin to return.
