Ocean Drifters: A Secret World Beneath the Waves is as interesting to look at as it is to read. Richard Kirby's beautiful photographs of plankton and microscopic marine organisms are accompanied by explanations of their characteristics and greater world impact. Since plankton play a crucial role in life on earth, this book, like others featured this week, asks readers to consider how humans are affecting the lives of our planet's ecosystems.
