Summary
"The deep sea is Earth's largest reservoir of life. Largely uncharted-- only about five percent of the seafloor has been mapped with any reasonable degree of detail-- the abyssal plains are home to creatures as magnificent as they are strange. Combining the latest deep-sea science with astonishing imagery, The deep takes readers on a voyage into the darkest realms of the ocean"--Jkt
