The Amazing World Beneath the Waves

This guide is for anyone who has ever been intrigued, fascinating or entranced by the world's oceans.

There are clear and concise explanations about how life evolved in the sea, and the extraordinary adaptations of creatures for survival in the extreme marine environment.

From the tiniest microscopic, one-celled plankton to the vast Blue Whale, incredible photographs, descriptions and illustrations will help you understand the amazing diversity of life beneath the waves.

Concepts such as tides, undersea mountains and the relationship between atmosphere and ocean are all carefully described to enable non-scientists to understand how important the World's Oceans are to Planet Earth and to the existence of life on Earth.

From tsunamis and earthquakes, to pollution and rising sea levels - here is a guide that everyone should read - about a watery world that so few humans understand, yet which makes up over 70% of our Planet Earth. We know more about the surface of the moon than the oceans of our own amazing planet. This book helps to redress that balance - and guides us effortlessly into "The World Beneath the Waves".
