Praise

“Very occasionally there comes to a reviewer a book as comprehensive in its range, as encyclopedic in its detail, as soundly based on scientific research and as profusely illustrated as SeaLife.”—Seafarer

“Edited by a research fellow at the University of London, this comprehensive treatise on marine biology is written for the nonscientist with a serious interest in the subject and could also serve as a college text. Introductory sections summarize oceanographic voyages and explorations, the origin of life in the sea, the physical and chemical nature of the oceans, and water movement and ocean circulation. A description of marine ecological zones and animal distribution among them precedes detailed chapters on marine vertebrates and invertebrates, marine reptiles, seabirds, cetaceans, and polar bears. . . . A useful reference source for academic and public libraries.”—Library Journal
