The California Coast: Marine Migrations and the Collapsing Food Chain
California's famous coast, the golden shore, the stuff of songs, stretches roughly 1,100 miles from the dry Mediterranean climes of the south to the lush rain forests of the north. In sunny San Diego, weather forecasts are notoriously boring; according to legend, they are sometimes recorded days or more in advance. In the north, redwood and Douglas fir forests drink in the driving rain and tickle water out of the fog, seeing little sun for months out of the year.
