Ocean Drifters – A secret world beneath the waves
Dr. Richard Kirby, plankton scientist and an Associate Fellow of the Marine Biological Association perhaps better known to many blue water sailors as the organizer for the citizen science Secchi Disk research study, has created a stunning visual book about plankton. Each amazing photograph of these microscopic creatures of the sea, magnified through the eyepiece of a microscope, is accompanied by a brief and readily understood explanation of its characteristics and how it affects us in our daily lives. This beautiful book would make an exceptional gift for anyone who loves or is drawn to the sea.
Published in hardcover in the US (£19.64), paperback in the UK (£15.70) and digital (iBook and Kindle) editions ($9.99) by Studio Cactus Books.
