Shores, seas and oceans are home to thousands of animals: from the mightiest sharks to jewel-like reef fish and armoured crabs. This book provides a guide to marine creatures, using an entry by entry approach. Each entry includes a table of information on scientific name, order and family, features, habitat, distribution, diet and breeding. By including fascinating examples from all of the world’s major marine families, Marine Life offers a truly comprehensive overview of marine dwellers from every sea and ocean and gives a sense of the incredible diversity of marine life.
The entries are grouped by order, then within each order by family (and, where necessary, within each family by subfamilies); each family section contains examples of the key species, which are illustrated with beautifully detailed, full-colour artworks. For easy reference, each entry includes a table of information on scientific name, order and family, features, habitat, distribution, diet and breeding.
