A companion volume to Cerullo and Curtsinger's Sea Soup: Phytoplankton, which explored the floating plant life of the oceans, this informative picture-book is devoted to the zooplankton - the floating marine animals - from tiny krill to massive jellyfish. The distinction between temporary and permanent zooplankton - the former including pretty much any sea animal in its larval stage - the dangers of contact with certain species (box jellyfish, anyone?), and the speed of movement and depth of diving that some species can attain, are all covered.

As in their other marine-themed picture-books, Cerullo and Curtsinger provide an engaging mix of informative text and fascinating photographs in Sea Soup: Zooplankton, a book that will appeal to young marine biologists everywhere. A glossary is included at the rear, as well as a list of further sources. Teachers might also want to take a look at the Sea Soup Teacher's Guide. ( )

A teaspoon of sea water can hold a soupy serving of a million zooplankton! These tiny animals often look like weird life forms from outer space or larger animals such as jellyfish.

In this newest volume (another volume: Sea Soup: Phytoplankton was published in December 1999), Mary Cerullos text answers intriguing questions about these tiny animals that have shaped our world, while Bill Curtsingers extraordinary photomicroscopy serves up tantalizing images of this sea soup. Many of the photos for these books were taken at Maines Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Science and the Darling Marine Center, using an Axiophot 2 research microscope donated by Carl Zeiss, Inc.

This book has an accompanying teacher's guide: Sea Soup Teachers Guide: Discovering the Watery World of Phytoplankton and Zooplankton

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:17:03 -0400)

Photographs and text provide information about the variety of ocean-dwelling creatures known as zooplankton, with discussion of the importance of these animals to the ocean food web.
