Atlas of Oceans is a vibrant journey through the Earth's oceans and a timely, important treatise on what must be done to save them.

Readers are introduced to the dazzling, diverse array of creatures that inhabit the oceans and seas, and to the nature of the problems they face. Special features focus on the threats to particular animals, plants, and habitats, as well as on specific issues like over fishing, global warming, and pollution.

The book also includes success stories, recommendations for what can be done to preserve ocean ecosystems, and a complete rundown of the most endangered species of marine life.

Beautifully illustrated, packed with maps and diagrams, and containing up-to-the-minute data on the status of endangered marine species, Atlas of Oceans is a celebration of the Earth's vibrant and awe-inspiring oceans, and an urgent call to action to protect one of our planet's most vital resources.

John Farndon studied Earth Sciences at Cambridge University and has written more than three hundred reference and general interest books for children and adults, including Earth, Amazing Planet Earth and How the Earth Works. His books have been translated into most major languages, and he has been short listed four times for the Royal Society Prize for Science Books.
