This is a collection of essays and colour photographs which concentrate on the wealth of the marine's environments. It considers the huge range of life which they support, as well as the human communities which depend and subsist on the oceans. It includes an introduction to the great diversity of life which lives in the ocean, traces their evolutionary development through the ages, and details the interreaction between climate and the oceans. It also deals with the coral reefs, mangroves and deltas that exist where the ocean meets land, and man and the sea - the myths and religions which are bound up with the ocean, together with what the future holds for the oceans in light of the acute problems which it faces. The Living Earth Foundation is a registered UK charity which sees education as its central activity. The Foundation has previously published "The Rainforests: A Celebration".
