Life in the Oceans

Life in the Oceans

by Norbert Wu

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-- An oversized volume that presents the oceans as vast areas of teeming life. Very little of the ocean has been explored, but Wu describes and illustrates the fascinating aspects that are known about this diverse and rich habitat. His full-color photographs are crisp and clear; their arrangement on the page is in direct relation to the text, which flows naturally from a discussion of the open ocean, coral reefs, the kelp forest, and the deep, to the future. Especially stunning is the section on the animals found from 1,000 to 5,000 feet. This book is fabulous for browsing--the photographs are spectacular, and the entries give in-depth information on specific aspects of the subject. The author uses Latin names and terminology, as well as those that are more common, and includes U. S. metric and temperature conversion tables, making this useful for reports and enjoyable as leisure reading. --Frances E. Millhouser, Reston Regional Library, VA
