5.0 out of 5 stars A superb read for enthausists and the like, 16 Nov 2000
By A Customer
As a student studying marine biology I required a book that was reasonable cheap and covered all aspects of the marine enviroment, this book fulfills both of these requirements. It covers such diverse topics as coral reefs, the benthic environment, pollution, and conservation. It is very easy to read and understand, and is well illustrated including some superb colour photographs. However, you do not have to be studying marine biology to make the most out of this book, it is a thoroughly enjoyable read for anyone who has a passing interest in the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars useful link to more learned tomes, 14 Jun 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't take biology beyond my 3rd year (age 14), but have a general scientific and mathematical background, and now I am "over 40" and trying to look a bit more at marine ecology I find this a very useful introduction with clear explanations (including excellent illustrations) of the latin and greek that the more learned tomes tend to lapse into. It is on very thin paper, so in spite of its huge number of pages it is light enough to carry about, and the print quality is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 25 Mar 2010
If you enjoy learning about the marine environment you'll enjoy this book. It is very good and informative. It begins with a few fairly indepth chapters on basic oceanography and then covers all the marine habitats from the benthic zone, epipelagic zone, deep sea, coral reefs etc. The last chapter is about overfishing and man's impacts on the world's oceans with detail of what habitats are being overfished and to what extent. Very good indeed.
