5.0 out of 5 stars Ocean Drifters - best buy of the year, 4 Oct 2010
This review is from: Ocean Drifters: A Secret World Beneath the Waves (Paperback)
Beyond the cover of this book lies a whole new world - just like the one it describes beneath the sea's surface. Never has the subject of plankton been presented in such a fascinating way. The photographs of the microscopic life forms are simply extraordinary - they are beyond sci-fi. And it is not just a coffee table publication because it is packed with information. The book works on many levels and proves that small is beautiful. Dr Kirby has successfully brought his research to the masses. I sincerely hope he is working on Ocean Drifters II, the sequel.

If you are into marine biology, it's a beautiful book, but doesn't contain much scientific substance. If underwater marine photography is your bag, then you will enjoy it.

This review is from: Ocean Drifters: A Secret World Beneath the Waves (Paperback)
This book is beautifully printed with stunning images of the main plankton groups, and the central theme is one of how the planet and mankind could not survive in our present form and lifestyle without the presence and influence of plankton. Richard Kirby provides an articulate and succinct overview of all aspects of the planktonic world and is scholarly and detailed - totally educational and recommended.

This review is from: Ocean Drifters: A Secret World Beneath the Waves (Paperback)
This excellent book deals with 2 main types of plankton a)phytoplankton-plant like cells and zoopkankton-the mainly tiny animals that eat the phytoplankton. These creatures live on the surface of oceans and are the start of the food chain that keeps the world alive and undertake an essential in the global carbon cycle.
The mainly microscopic pictures -up to 300x magnification are first class.
A remarkable book rhat is highly reccommended to anyone interested in sealife.
