Description - Water World by Ben Rothery
Life on Earth is shaped by water, and only survives here because of it, but our ocean ecosystems are at the epicentre of global warming.
This enormous blue wilderness contains somewhere between half and three quarters of all life on Earth, including the biggest and most numerous creatures to ever live. But more than 90 per cent of Earth's warming since 1950 occurred in oceans, despite their vast capacity to absorb heat and CO2.
Framed by the need to protect our fragile oceans, Water World is natural-history illustrator Ben Rothery's rich exploration of the creatures from the coastal and offshore waters of the world - from penguins, seagulls, polar bears and seahorses, to plankton, sharks and deep-sea beings. Discover the longest migration and the loudest animal on Earth, and learn how our own actions affect the ocean, its inhabitants and our whole planet.
