Abstract
    The Extreme Life of the Sea" tells the unforgettable tales of some of the most marvelous life forms on Earth, and the challenges they overcome to survive. This book takes readers to the absolute limits of the ocean world - the fastest and deepest, the hottest and oldest creatures of the oceans. It dives into the icy Arctic and boiling hydrothermal vents and exposes the eternal darkness of the deepest undersea trenches to show how marine life thrives against the odds, and tells their stories as characters in the drama of the oceans. It tells the unforgettable tales of some of the most marvelous life forms on Earth, and the challenges they overcome to survive. These fragile ecosystems face new challenges: climate change and overfishing could pose the greatest threats yet to our planet’s tenacious marine life.
