About this book

Captures with exquisite detail how limpets, like bees, navigate by the stars; how the brainless sea urchin makes a myriad of critical survival decisions every day; how 'deserted islands' teem with an incredible abundance of animal life; and why deep-diving whales never get the bends. Entertaining and authoritative.
`In this superbly accessible book, Martin Wells reveals twenty-five self contained tide pools for the scientific imagination, teeming with what we understand about life in the ocean - and what we don't.'George B.Dyson, Author of Darwin Among the Machines
