Overview

In the nearshore waters of Alaska’s remote and pristine Aleutian Islands is an astoundingly diverse and beautiful undersea world that is captured here for the first time, through color photographs taken by research divers. The photographs in this book convey the awe-inspiring experience of the divers as they encountered the spectacular beauty of the underwater Aleutians ecosystems. Together with an accompanying text that provides natural history information and an overview of the geography, geology, and oceanography of the 1,200-mile archipelago, the images are a powerful vehicle for science education, making apparent the need to preserve the region’s natural splendor.

Editorial Reviews

Sylvia Earle

“The waters of the Aleutian Islands are home to species representing most of the major divisions of the earth’s animals, plants, and microbes. Beautifully illustrated are a dozen major animal forms, from sponges and anemones, to arthropods, echinoderms, mollusks, and fishes. Thanks to these intrepid authors, anyone who wishes to experience the world of the living treasures that grace the depths along the Aleutian Islands can vicariously do so.”

Outdoor Photography
"The 115 images . . . transport you to a rich and diverse ecosystem full of color and dynamism. Impeccable macro shots reveal the intricate beauty of algae, sponges and anemones, allowing us to vicariously explore these hidden details through the divers' own adventures in the North Pacific."
