Description

We know more about the suface of the Moon than we do about the bottom of our own planet's oceans. This guide delves into an amazing variety of watery worlds, bringing these environments to life. Planet Earth's surface is dominated by its oceans and yet they are the least explored of all its natural habits. They house the planet's highest mountain peaks, its greatest store of volcanic landscapes and thousands of as yet undiscovered plant and animal species. This book explores how the oceans have evolved and how their waters shape the land upon which we walk. It takes us on a voyage from shorelines to colourful coral reefs and sunlit waters, before diving down into midwater and deepsea kingdoms, full of strange creatures that are rarely glimpsed by the human eye.show more
