In untold trillions, in numbers that approach the incalculable, the surface of each of the world's great seas is inhabited by living organisms, tiny and marvelously varied expressions of the great chain of ocean life.
In this informative new book a noted author and distinguised nature artist portray the beauty, integrity, and fascinating interrationships found among the living pastures of plankton. How these nutrient seas live, reproduce and die; how man is dependent upon these minute creatures' daily and seasonal rhythms; why and how pollution, particularly immense oil spills, poses such a devastating threat are all described and depicted.
