Census of Marine Life
The Census of Marine Life also marks a milestone with the publication of this rich book.
Although I do not have this book, I am quite familiar with the COML project and the research that is being conducted to quantify the diversity of global marine life. It looks like a fascinating book and would make a wonderful gift for that marine person in your life. This evening, the Gulf of Maine Marine Educators Association is hosting their annual meeting and discussing this beautiful book at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. If you are a student or educator interested in marine education, this is a great opportunity to join their organization and participate. I’m looking forward to meeting many of the folks in this state that provide marine science education and maybe picking up a copy of the book also!
