Book Recommendation

Here is a book worth possessing. Ocean Drifters, a secret world beneath the waves, a new book by Dr Richard Kirby

Dr Kirby examines the hidden microcosm of life, the world of plankton, lurking behind the waves. The microscopic algae and the tiny animals that eat them float freely on the surface of the sea. They are the basis of marine food chain, generating oxygen, and playing a key role in the global carbon cycle.

Dr Richard Kirby's superb high-magnification photographs and informative text is a feast for the eye and a great read.
