Out of the Blue Summary


Out of the Blue: A Journey Through the World's Oceans by Paul V. Horsman

This lavish photographic guide to life beneath the ocean waves celebrates the diversity of the extraordinary wealth of living creatures that inhabit the world's oceans. We might call our planet Earth, but over 70 per cent of 'Earth' is under water, and this water teems with life. This superb exploration of the oceans describes the marine plants and animals that inhabit our planet, whether in the coldest water of the ice-bound Poles, the warmest tropical seas, at the surface or in the deep ocean. The expertly written text is combined with stunning pictures of ocean dwellers from jellyfish to blue whales. "Out of the Blue" is divided into nine chapters, each of which highlights a different aspect of marine life, beginning with Salty Sea Soup, where the tiny plankton that form the basis of life in the sea are expertly depicted. Coral reefs, fish, turtles, ocean mammals, and creatures of the deep are the subjects of the following chapters, as are some less well-known ecosystems - the Sargasso Sea and sea mounts - and the ways in which ocean-dwellers use light to their advantage. The book concludes with a chapter on the future of the oceans - the threats they face and possible conservation solutions. Life began on the ocean floor and there are many mysteries of marine life still to be unraveled. This sumptuous book brings to life this hidden habitat for everyone who has so much as dipped a toe in the ocean.
