Summary:

"Amazing things happen under the Earth's waters: the sea glows mysteriously at night, the smallest organisms (plankton) have the greatest power, and the fish, which seem so taciturn, communicate with each other loudly. In Blue Wonder, Frauke Bagusche, a German marine biologist, takes us on a fascinating dive beneath the ocean to recount her personal experiences with the world's smallest and largest creatures, explaining, for example, the origins of the scent of the sea breeze, the glow in the water at night, and, most importantly, why the fate of our whole planet depends on healthy, diverse, and productive oceans. Drawing on the latest scientific findings as well as her own discoveries, Bagusche reveals how, with every breath we take, we are so deeply connected with what she affectionately calls the "blue wonder." She also explains why the sea so desperately needs our help and presents real solutions, supported by research, for saving the oceans. By taking simple measures in our everyday lives we can help to preserve our livelihood, the sea. With the heart of a poet and reason of a scientist, Bagusche awakens not only our love for the sea but the desire to protect this unique and vital habitat far into the future." -- from book jacket.
