Abstract:

Compares and contrasts tropical coral reef fishes and temperate climate fishes, using the differences between city dwellers and country dwellers as an analogy to describe fish from the two bioregions. Fish that live in warmer tropical seas are like city dwellers, packed into reefs and surrounded by life in great variety and urgent motion, day and night. Through color, shape, size, and other adaptations, city fish and country fish have evolved to survive in their particular habitats. That powerful analogy and vibrant underwater photos captivate young readers with the wild variety of ocean life. The second edition of this popular book includes new information about the effects of climate change on fish and their habitats and about great white sharks, who are among the few species who roam back and forth between cold and tropical waters.
