Dive into this uniquely elegant visual exploration of the sea with this stunning guide to ocean life.

An informative and utterly beautiful introduction to marine life and the ocean environment, The Science of the Ocean book brings the riches of the underwater world onto the printed page.

Astounding photography reveals an abundance of life, from microscopic plankton to great whales, seaweed to starfish. Published in association with the Natural History Museum, the book explores every corner of the oceans, from coral reefs and mangrove swamps to deep ocean trenches.

Dive deep into the pages of this striking guide to oceans to further discover:

- Supporting artworks show how ocean processes work (including tsunamis and undersea volcanoes), and how marine organisms function, providing a deeper layer of reference.
- Features the rich diversity of plant and animal life in and around the oceans and shows how organisms have adapted to different conditions.
- Explains the biology, oceanography, geology, and climatology of the oceans in easy language and graphic detail.
- Galleries showcase diversity in the marine world, showing how life finds different solutions to similar challenges.
- Features on how the ocean and marine life have been depicted in art.
- Optional 80-page section consisting of a catalogue of major groups of sea life.

Along the way, and with the help of clear, simple illustrations, it explains how life has adapted to the marine environment, revealing for example how a stonefish delivers its lethal venom and how a sponge sustains itself by sifting food from passing currents. It also examines the physical forces and processes that shape the oceans, from global circulation systems and tides to undersea volcanoes and tsunamis.

To most of us, the marine world is out of reach. But with the help of photography and the latest technology, The Science of the Ocean brings us up close to animals, plants, and other living things that inhabit a fantastic and almost incomprehensibly beautiful other dimension.
