About this book

Language: Japanese

This book describes the life forms found in the twilight zone of the deep sea, below depths of 150 metres. Only a fraction of this area has been explored and it's still largely an unknown world.

Summary in Japanese:
近年、深海ブームが起こり、そこに棲む生き物たちに心惹かれた方も多いのではないでしょうか。恐ろしい形相をしていたり、奇妙な体をしていたり、「なぜそ んなになってしまったの?」と思わず首をかしげてしまいます。本書は、そんな生物たちが潜む不思議な世界のなかでも、水深150メートル以深のトワイライ トゾーンを舞台にした一冊です。

皆さんがお好きな奇妙な生物のみにとどまらず、それら生物を支えるプランクトンの働き、そしてそれらが生き残るべく獲得してきた生活様式など、最近の研究で明らかになった海の世界がわかりやすくまとめられています。
私たちが普段目にしているのは、深く広がる海のほんの表面にしかすぎず、その奥はまだまだ未知の世界です。

しかし、生物たちの生活をのぞき見た本書により、暗闇に潜む生物たち、さらにはその世界が今まで以上に脚光を浴びることとなるでしょう。
