The Extreme Life of the Sea

Palumbi smallStephen R. Palumbi, Director, Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford University
Anthony R. Palumbi, Author and Science Writer

Oceans cover more than 70 percent of Earth’s surface and contain most of its biodiversity. Yet, we know more about the surface of the Moon and Mars than we know about the floor of the world’s oceans. Join biologist Steve Palumbi and writer Anthony Palumbi as they take us into the vast unknown ocean, bringing us tales of some of the most diverse life in the sea.

The Palumbis dig into every corner of the ocean, showing how unique ocean creatures are tied to their environment. They effectively demonstrate how small human-driven changes to the oceans can disrupt a complex system developed over millions of years. “The Anthony Palumbi SmallPalumbis encourage a childlike curiosity by showing us the amazing diversity of life down below, and perhaps our inner children will pester our grownup selves into doing what needs to be done to keep these habitats intact.” ~Publisher’s Weekly

Come hear unforgettable stories of some of the most marvelous life forms on Earth––the fastest and deepest, the hottest and oldest creatures of the oceans––that inhabit the most extreme limits of the aquatic world. You’ll be amazed.

Book signing immediately following lecture. The Extreme Life of the Sea is available in the Ocean Discovery Shop.
