Beneath the waves lies a hidden microcosm of life: the world of plankton. These astonishing microscopic algae and the tiny animals that eat them float freely in the sunlit surface of the sea, where they underpin the whole marine food chain, provide the world with oxygen, and play an essential role in the global carbon cycle. Richard Kirby's superb high-magnification photographs and informative text bring out the beauty and the amazing variety of forms in the plankton, and explain how global climate change and rising sea temperatures are affecting this complex world with ramifications for the ecology of our entire planet.
