Undersea Encounter Books

American Library review of the Undersea Encounters series reads:

Partners in the Sea

“In this nicely designed volume in the Undersea Encounters series, the authors introduce marine symbiosis, explaining mutualism and commensal partnerships as well as parasitism, providing numerous examples to clarify the concepts. Though most of the examples describe invertebrates such as sponges, sea anemones, sea urchins, and jellyfish, the authors also reference vertebrates, such as clownfish and cleaner fish. Remarkable full-color photos dominate every page. Crisp-edged and well lit, they offer amazing detail and greatly enhance the text. The use of large print and captions in colored type, which affords greater contrast against dark photographic backgrounds, makes the whole pleasing to the eye and appealing to younger readers. A glossary and a bibliography round out the book, which will be a popular choice for both browsers and report writers.”
