This book provides a broad and comprehensive overview of two groups of marine animals.

We are more familiar with land animals, quite naturally, because that is where humans live. Marine environments may not be as familiar to most people, but they do contain as great a diversity of animals as are found on land. Marine animals can vary from tiny single celled organisms through to the largest animals on earth. Fish and crustaceans are obvious to us. There are more complex animals than fish and crustaceans though which also inhabit marine environments; including birds (e.g. seagulls and penguins), mammals and reptiles.

While the birds are never exclusively confined to the water; there are reptiles and mammals which spend almost all, or even all of their time in the water. Learn topics including identification of marine mammals and reptiles, their ecology, reproduction and more.
