Marine biology is both essential and inspirational to human life. The bodies of mollusks in particular allow them to live aboveground, underwater, or both, depending on the species. Readers will learn about the unique contribution oysters, squid, and slugs, all of which are different classes of mollusks, make to their habitats. Their diets, their vulnerabilities, what they leave behind, and what threatens them take shape on pages that depict what mollusks are through both stunning photography and highly organized prose.
