About this product
- DescriptionThe second of our series with the New England Aquarium, Amazing Jellies presents an entertaining and authoritative look into the little-kwn world of what we commonly, but incorrectly, have kwn as jellyfish. Jellies are among the most beautiful and unusual animals on earth. They are present in all the oceans of the world and their fossils have been found in rocks 650 million years old. They have brain, liver, kidneys, heart, lungs, or gills. They do t need blood, have eyes, se or tongue. They can be lethal and are nearly always beautiful. Disappearing Giants: The North Atlantic Right Whale was our first collaboration with the New England Aquarium, and with the same depth and clarity, Amazing Jellies provides the reader with a thorough understanding of jellies and their role in the ocean. The book takes advantage of the most recent research into jellies, which explores how climate change and global warming are affecting the sea jellies of the world, as well as the rest of us. Beautiful colour photographs accompany a clearly written and wide-ranging text.
