It's a little disconcerting to splash in the ocean and not know what's lurking under the surface, skimming your ankles. Steve Palumbi knows. This leading marine scientist, and co-author of The Extreme Life of the Sea
, takes you to the most extreme limits of the aquatic world -- the fastest and deepest, the hottest and oldest creatures of the oceans. Diving into the icy Arctic and boiling hydrothermal vents, he shines a light into the vast darkness of the deepest undersea trenches to show how marine life thrives against the odds. He also talks about the new challenges facing these fragile ecosystems: Climate change and overfishing could pose the greatest threats yet to our planet's tenacious marine life. Palumbi shares unforgettable stories of some of the most marvelous life forms on Earth and reveals surprising lessons of how we as humans can learn to adapt to climate change. Stick around after his talk and he'll sign your book.
