Coasts in Danger

by Polly Goodman

Part of a Series: Earth Alert!.

In five chapters, this volume covers different kinds of coasts; how they are changing; why they are important for plants, animals, and people; and how they are threatened by climate change and human activities. Sidebars relay additional information, including facts about the April 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as activities and anecdotes. The many color photos are engaging and the helpful back matter contains further reading and suggested Web sites, a glossary, an informative diagram, and an index.
