    The English-language book The Marine World: A Natural History of Ocean Life dives into an immense, three-dimensional world that is inhabited by marine life that varies from graceful to bizarre. The salt influence extends over estuaries, seacoasts and inland with brine-like spray. This book deals with all those organisms that live in, on and around the ocean, in a single text together, from the miniscule to the immense. With chapters on not only all visible groups of invertebrate marine animals, including fish, reptiles, mammals and birds but also the less visible marine bacteria, plants, fungi and protozoa, it gives an insight into the existence and the way of life of almost everything lives in the ocean.

    Every animal or plant has its own specific place in the ecosystem. This magnificent book contains the most important marine habitats and ecosystems, including open water, coast, deep sea, coral reefs and much more. Topics such as recognition and distribution of species, their appearance, biology and conservation of ecosystems are discussed. Written in clear, accessible language and illustrated with photographs and detailed drawings, this book offers in-depth information to answer questions that begin with 'what?', 'Where?' and how?'.

    The Marine World: A Natural History of Ocean Life is for the curious nature lover on, in and around the ocean: for the student who needs more details, for the scientist who wants background knowledge, for the diver who investigates what he sees, for the discoveries by the fisherman, for parents who discover the sea with their children. Actually for everyone who loves the sea.
    With foreword by Mark Carwardine.
