Excellent book for the professional and amateur marine biologist, as well as anyone with a general interest in natural history. Absolutely stunning images and interesting text to dip in and out of. The book is about how a large marine science project on the deep-sea animals of the mid-Atlantic Ridge in the N. Atlantic is formed, comes to fruition, the many research cruises and also the animals that are sampled.
There is also artwork from Norwegian artist Ornalf Opdahl, and images from the David Shale (BBC Blue Planet - The Deep).
A lot of book for the money! Great Christmas gift for dads, and biology students alike.
