The Blue Planet: A Natural History of the Oceans

by Andrew Byatt, Alastair Fothergill, and Martha Holmes (2001): The Blue Planet is a broad-ranging, nonthreatening introduction to our planet's oceans for the reader who is interested, but not well versed, in science. Six of seven chapters cover the basic ocean environments (e.g., tropical seas, frozen seas, and the deep), with an emphasis on the plant and animal life found in these regions.
