Beautifully illustrated, packed with maps and diagrams, and containing up-to-date data on the status of endangered marine species,Atlas of Oceansis a celebration of Earth's vibrant and awe-inspiring oceans and seas and an urgent call to action to protect one of our planet's most vital resources.

A tragedy is playing out beneath the surface of the world's bodies of marine waters, one that began long before the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Although many books have explored the environmental problems being faced on land,Atlas of Oceansis the first one for a general audience that examineshow creatures of the marine environment are, if anything, more vulnerable than their land-based counterparts.

Fully illustrated with stunning photography of the most interesting aquatic areas, including:
  • â??Ocean currents and climate
  • Changing shorelines
  • Tropical and polar waters
  • Layers in the ocean

Special features focus on thethreats to particular animals, plants, and habitats, as well as on specific issues likeover-fishing,global warming, andpollution. The book also includessuccess stories, recommendations forwhat can be doneto preserve ocean ecosystems, and a complete rundown ofthe most endangered species of marine life.
