Summary
  • "Readers will learn all about sharks and the human relationship with sharks, including how researchers study sharks at sea and how students can get involved in learning more about sharks and helping to protect these incredible creatures"--
  • Sharks evolved about 420 million years ago, and have adapted to survive both deep in the ocean and in shallow-water habitats. Many species are now endangered due in part to commercial fishing and water pollution. Readers discover the role sharks play in the food chain; how researchers study sharks at sea, and how students can get involved in learning more about sharks-- and helping to protect these incredible creatures. -- adapted from publisher info, jacket, and first-chapter info
