Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This covers the aquatic animal kingdom in three sections: fishes, aquatic invertebrates, and marine mammals, giving information such as classification, body structure, and habits. Extended essays treat such topics as "What is a fish?" Although the ground has been covered before, the excellent presentation makes this book special. In addition to the text, there are interesting sidebars on aggression in anemones, how tuna keep warm, and learning and memory in flatworms. The photographs are clear, have informative captions, and frequently not only show the animal but illustrate behavior. The drawn and painted illustrations depict body features in a way often impossible in photographs. There is a good glossary and the index (in microscopic print) is detailed. One of the best encyclopedias on this topic. Susan Klimley, Columbia Univ. Lib., New York

This book is for any one interested in the wonders of life. Every time you open the book and browse through the pages you can learn something new and interesting. To make it even more interesting are the colorful pictures of the diverse marine life. To anyone who has an interest in biology this is a must have!!

This book is an in-depth look at the shark. It is basic enough for most people to understand. The photographs are wonderful.
