About this book

Accompanying book for the highly acclaimed BBC TV series on the world's oceans which was broadcast in Autumn 2001.
Blue Planet explores the fascinating underwater environment of the world's oceans, from the apparent `desert' of the open ocean to the abyssal depths where monstrous creatures lurk in the darkness. Divided into seven chapters, each focusing on a single habitat, it combines to form a comprehensive guide to the world's oceans. Chapter topics are as follows: The Water Planet (introduction), The Coasts (shores and tides), Tropical Seas (tropical oceans and coral reefs), The Feeding Grounds (temperate oceans), Frozen Waters (icy oceans), The Open Ocean (mid-ocean habitat) and The Deep (deep-ocean habitat).
