ASilent Springfor oceans—from “the Rachel Carson of the fish world” (The New York Times) The sea feeds and sustains us, but its future is under catastrophic threat. In this powerful and ambitious book Callum Roberts—one of the world’s foremost conservation biologists—tells the story of the history of the sea, from the earliest traces of water on earth to the oceans as we know them today. He offers a devastating account of the impact of overfishing, deep-sea mining, pollution, and climate change and explains what we must do now to preserve our rapidly dwindling marine life. Passionate and persuasive,The Ocean of Lifeis a wake-up call that will appeal to anyone who loves the sea and its creatures.
