Journey Into the Deep

Description

Have you ever wondered what mysteries the ocean holds?
Prepare to explore the ocean from sunlit shallows to the deepest, darkest depths. Along the way, you’ll meet many incredible creatures that are brand-new to science.
Dive to a coral reef and spot a new species of pygmy octopus. Travel deeper and discover fragile, nearly transparent jellies as they drift past. Then head down into a world of eternal night. You’ll encounter animals that make their own light and zombie worms that feast on the bones of dead whales.

Your adventure is based on the real journeys of scientists involved in the Census of Marine Life. From 2000 to 2010, more than two thousand researchers from eighty-two countries carried out the most extensive investigation of ocean life ever attempted.

Author Rebecca L. Johnson takes readers to research sites around the globe, showing how ocean scientists do their work. Stunning photographs throughout bring readers face-to-face with some of the most mesmerizing creatures on Earth.

The app includes the following special features:
-video introduction from the author
-photo slideshows
-videos of sea creatures
-links to websites with further information
-discussion guide
