Details

In the depths of the Earth's oceans live many creatures that are bizarre beyond the wildest imaginations. In prehistoric times, a shark called Helicoprion swam through the sea with teeth that grew in a terrifying spiral. Today, giant squid roam the oceans, and one that recently washed up on a Tasmanian beach measured almost 60 feet in length. There are also many more familiar life forms that call the water their home, including dolphins, whales, albatross, and coral. Their diversity is astounding, and this book provides for young students a highly illustrated survey of the creatures that dwell underwater.

In the Sea provides an excellent overview of the life that inhabits Earth's seas, oceans, rivers, and lakes from the start of evolution to the present day. It guides students through the past and present and around the globe, showing them the variety of features and adaptations that enable life to flourish underwater. Many illustrations provide a valuable visual accompaniment to the easy-to-read text. Fish, mammals, birds, and plants are covered in this book, and how some life forms survive in the water is discussed.

Coverage includes:
  • Cephalochordates and extinct jawless fishes
  • Sharks and relatives
  • Early bony fishes
  • Extinct placodonts and nothosaurs
  • Aquatic turtles, ancient and modern
  • How whales evolved
  • Prehistoric shore and water birds
  • Life of the coral reefs
