Amazing Diversity. Marine life of Antarctica - From the surface to the abyssal plain.
Description: This beautiful poster illustrates the diversity of marine life in the Antarctic Ocean, from the surface to the seafloor. Twenty species are shown in their environment (ice, water column and seafloor). They examplify the multitude of forms and lifestyles in the Southern Ocean. By combining them all in one poster, the beauty of Antarctic marine life, inaccessible for most ordinary people, is made visible to a wider audience.
