from d/j:

...Scientifically and now economically, the deep seas are one of the last great frontiers. Every decade since the 1960s has seen the discovery of yet another, hitherto unknown environment in the deep sea. Additionally, we are now exploiting the resources of the deep in earnest. The past few decades have seen the deep sea stripped of much of its fishery resources. Oil is now extracted from depths of 2000 metres and mining interests are poised to open the first deep-sea mines.
THE SILENT DEEP charts the discovery and ecology of the deep sea's major environments: the Lilliputian fauna of the deep seafloor, the seemingly bizarre life forms at mid-ocean depths; the profusion of life at hot vents, cold seeps and whale falls; and the coldwater corals and fisheries on seamounts and deepwater reefs. Author Tony Koslow also examines human impacts on this global frontier; from dumping and pollution, mining, deepwater fisheries and now from climate change.
Written by one of the world's leading deep-sea ecologists, THE SILENT DEEP is a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the state of the deep ocean today: what is known and what isn't at the frontier of deep ocean science; the impacts that humankind has had on the deep and issues to look out for in the coming years. THE SILENT DEEP is highly readable and will be of vital interest to anyone interested in ocean science, the story of scientific discovery, and in ocean conservation.

'One of the world's leading deep-sea ecologists, Dr Tony Koslow holds Australian, Canadian and US citizenship and led the CSIRO Division of Marine Research's Deepwater Ecology Project for more than 10 years...'
