Product description

About the Series Each book in this essential series reveals the life cycles of ten animals in a particular habitat which link together to create three food chains. At the end of the book a simple overview helps readers understand how the three food chains interact to create a food web- the perfect first introduction to this core science concept. Biodiversity in the ocean is critical to the health of the planet, yet very few texts are available that explain the variety of aquatic food chains. Through appealing photography, clear text, and engaging design, this book examines one lifecycle in each of three oceans-The Indo-Pacific Ocean, The Pacific Ocean, and the Atlantic/Indian Ocean. At the end the three cycles are woven together into one food web, demonstrating that all life in the ocean is linked. A wonderful introduction to an environmental topic that is at the forefront of current events.

Review quote

BooklistAn attractive layout with large, simply stated text, an ocean-blue background, and plenty of photographs make things easy on the eye, while a pictorial animal guide along each page, a glossary, and an index make the book easy to use. Library Media ConnectionThe layout, colors, and photography are well organized and very eye-catching. These books would be useful for browsing, as well as teaching and researching ecosystems and life cycles. .
