The North Atlantic coast of North America—commonly known as the Atlantic Coast—extends from Newfoundland and Labrador through the Maritime Provinces and the Northeastern United States south to Cape Hatteras. This North Atlantic region belongs to the sea. The maritime influence on climate flora and fauna is dominant — even far inland. Both on land and at sea this region is where north meets south where the great northern boreal forests intermingle with the southern coniferous-hardwood forests and where the icy Labrador Current and the tropical Gulf Stream vie for supremacy and eventually mix. The Atlantic Coast draws upon the best and most up-to-date science on the ecology of the region as well as the author’s lifetime experience as a resident biologist and naturalist. The book explores the geological origins of the region the two major forest realms and the main freshwater and marine ecosystems and describes the flora and fauna that characterize each habitat. It ends with a look at what has been lost and how the remaining natural heritage of the region might be conserved for the future.
