Description

The ocean teems with life that thrives under difficult situations in unusual environments. "The Extreme Life of the Sea" takes readers to the absolute limits of the ocean world--the fastest and deepest, the hottest and oldest creatures of the oceans. It dives into the icy Arctic and boiling hydrothermal vents--and exposes the eternal darkness of the deepest undersea trenches--to show how marine life thrives against the odds.

Coauthored by Stephen Palumbi, one of today's leading marine scientists, "The Extreme Life of the Sea" tells the unforgettable tales of some of the most marvelous life forms on Earth, and the challenges they overcome to survive.
