\"In fall of 1980, an older husband and wife team unexpectedly arrived in my marine invertebrate zoology class. This was my introduction to Drs. Lovell and Libby Langstroth, and it led to a friendship that has grown through 20 years. In that time, beginning with their 'retirement,' the Langstroths took up SCUBA diving and underwater photography. They became outstanding photographers of marine life. Moreover, with their insatiable desire to learn from all the marine biologists in the Monterey Bay area, they became experts in their own right. Their quest has culminated in this book, a unique combination of outstanding color photography and the most recent scientific information, presented in language that can be understood by anyone. This series of 'short stories' about some of the fascinating organisms that live in the Monterey Bay can be read and enjoyed by anyone interested in marine life.\"--James W. Nybakken, author of Marine Biology: An Ecological Approach\n\"[This book] is brimming with engaging facts on the marine realm. The photographs are unparalleled in their combination of beauty and utility in capturing biologic processes. This work will be exceedingly valuable to marine educators and advanced students.\"--Paul Valentich Scott, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History\n\"With A Living Bay, Lovell and Libby Langstroth have bridged the gap between the dry, technical writing of science and the superficial treatment of most photography books on the ocean. This is a book to linger over. The authors have spent a lifetime photographing and gathering natural history notes about their subjects, gleaning a wealth of interesting details. This remarkable compendium of photographs and text promises to be a classic.\"--Norbert Wu, photographer, author of Splendors of the Seas
