What the wild sea can be - the future of the world's ocean

"The acclaimed marine biologist and author of The Brilliant Abyss examines the existential threats the world's ocean will face in the coming decades and offers cautious optimism for much of the abundant life within. No matter where we live, "we are all ocean people," Helen Scales emphatically observes in her bracing yet hopeful exploration of the future of the ocean. Beginning with its fascinating deep history, Scales links past to present to show how the prehistoric ocean ecology was already wo

 
Sing like fish - how sound rules life under water

"For centuries, humans ignored sound in the "silent world" of the ocean, assuming that what we couldn't perceive, didn't exist. But we couldn't have been more wrong. Marine scientists now have the technology to record and study the complex interplay of the myriad sounds in the sea. Finally, we can trace how sounds travel with the currents, bounce from the seafloor and surface, bend with the temperature and even saltiness; how sounds help marine life survive; and how human noise can transform ent

 
The secret history of sharks - the rise of the ocean's most fearsome predators

"From ancient megalodons to fearsome Great Whites, this is the complete, untold story of how sharks emerged as Earth's ultimate survivors, by a world-leading paleontologist Sharks have been fighting for their lives for 500 million years and are under direthreat today.

A wild promise - an illustrated celebration of the Endangered Species Act

"In 1973, the United States Congress came together with bipartisan support to create and pass a bold and visionary act-one of protection, preservation, and promise. For the past fifty years this promise, The Endangered Species Act, has ensured that the most threatened and vulnerable species and their habitats are protected.
