            Dive into our planet's largest and least explored world in this stunning encyclopedia of everything ocean - including whales, waves, wrecks, wind farms, and more! Using 3D computer illustrations to show cross-section views and a level of detail you can't find in other books, this... children's ocean encyclopedia takes you on a world tour of the waters that cover 70 percent of our planet. Including sharks, jellyfish, turtles, dolphins, octopuses, penguins, and seahorses, you will see the fish, invertebrates, and other animals that call the ocean home and learn how their anatomy and behaviour is adapted to deal with a watery habitat. Discover the geography, geology, and ecology that lies beneath the waves - from the dramatic landscapes of the deepest trench and the longest mountain range on Earth, to coastal coral reefs and kelp forests teeming with life. Find out, too, about the science behind the seas. How do islands form? What are tsunamis? How can you help with marine conservation? Beautifully illustrated and packed full of facts, Knowledge Encyclopedia Ocean is the ultimate reference book for children curious about our planet's watery world.

            Explore ecology in this accessible introduction to how the natural world works and how we have started to understand the environment, ecosystems, and climate change. Using a bold, graphic-led approach, The Ecology Book explores and explains over 85 of the key ideas, movements, an...d acts that have defined ecology and ecological thought. The book has a simple chronological structure, with early chapters ranging from the ideas of classical thinkers through to attempts by Enlightenment thinkers to systematically order the natural world. Later chapters trace the evolution of modern thinking, from the ideas of Thomas Malthus, Henry Thoreau, and others, right the way through to the political and scientific developments of the modern era, including the birth of the environmental movement and the Paris Agreement. The ideal introduction to one of the most important subjects of our time.
