An astounding and beautiful glimpse into the wonders of marine life. Remarkable close-up photographs show behavior such as a shark birth, an octopus eating a turbo, squid mating, and a conger eel eating a yellow tang. This book is an outstanding collaborative effort by some of the world's leading marine-life authorities.From Library Journal:
This large (10 14) volume of striking photographs emphasizes the beauty of marine life and the interrelationships of all ocean inhabitants. Divided into sections on the living ocean, energy of life, interactions among species, and marine biodiversity, the straightforward explanatory text is accompanied by full-page and full-spread photographs by commercial photographers, photojournalists, divers, and professors of oceanography. Inspirational essays by ocean conservation activists are aimed at promoting the cause of ocean protection; short biographies of the photographers and an index to photo captions are included. Written for the nonscientist, this book could well inspire a young person to pursue a career in marine biology or in diving. Marine biologist Thorne-Miller is a co-founder of Ocean Advocates, an environmental consulting company, and author of The Living Ocean ( LJ 2/15/91).
