Its watery world is not our world, but Life in the Pacific Ocean, with its vivd photographs and engaging text, gives us a glimpse into the secrets beneath the surface of the ocean. How do barnacles have sex? Why are sea stars the most feared predators of the intertidal zone? What is life like for the denizens of the dark, quiet seafloor, where conditions have barely changed since life began? This book, adapted and expanded from sections of the best-seling British Columbia: A Natural History, both offer answers and rais.
