Life in the World’s Oceans is a true landmark publication, distilling the efforts of thousands of marine biologists, ecologists, oceanographers and statisticians worldwide who have been involved in the first decadal Census of Marine Life.

Broadly divided into six parts, Life in the World’s Oceans commences with a look at life in oceans past, followed by in-depth chapters covering the current oceans’ realms, including coral reefs, seamounts, the deep sea and the polar regions. Coverage of global distributions of microbes and zooplankton is followed by a section reviewing animal movements within the oceans. The book concludes with chapters covering the future of marine animal populations, and the utilization of the data contained within the Census’ database, the Ocean Biogeographic Information System.

Life in the World’s Oceans:

  • provides a huge wealth of distilled information, vitally important in future marine studies;
  • reports on the total richness of the oceans’ biodiversity;
  • represents the work of thousands of scientists involved in the Census;
  • puts marine biodiversity in the foreground of the scientific landscape.

Thoroughly edited by the late Professor Alasdair McIntyre, who was a world leader in marine sciences, and beautifully produced in full color throughout, Life in the World’s Oceans is an essential purchase for all libraries in universities and research institutions throughout the world. All those involved in scientific work on the oceans, including biological scientists, oceanographers, marine and environmental scientists, should have copies of this exceptional book on their shelves.
