Deep Ocean SixDeep Ocean Six

In the Overworld—or more specifically—in the deep ocean biome, highly absorbent sponges naturally spawn in ocean monuments.” Rob was still skeptical. “Then why don't they automatically suck up the whole sea?” “Because they spawn wet.

Someone is draining the Overworld oceans of resources . . . but to what end? It could be a ploy by the griefer army to draw Captain Rob and his cavalry members away from the United Biomes of the Overworld capital, which they risked their very identities to defend. Or it could be theft on a scale so grand that only the deepest of oceans can contain it. At the same time, it seems no coincidence that priceless relics and one-of-a-kind gemstones go missing from the new Overworld museum. The spectacular monument to the history of the free world is a worth a fortune. Housing the valuables of the Overworld makes Capital City Museum a target for every rogue player—and for the Griefer Imperial Army, now led by a gang of villains spawned by Lady Craven. When key pieces of UBO heritage are stolen, the troopers of Battalion Zero must pool brains, brawn, and every bit of luck they have to recover them. The six friends must pull off the perfect heist: Captain Rob, leader and delegator ... Corporal Frida, master of stealth and disguise . . . Quartermaster Jools, strategist and techie extraordinaire . . . Sergeant at Arms Turner, muscle personified ... Artilleryman Stormie, terrain expert . . . and Master of Horses Kim, the “bronc whisperer” all work together to recover the UBO’s secret treasures in this tempestuous fourth book in the Defenders of the Overworld series.

An epic excursion into one of the last great frontiers on Earth The deep ocean comprises more than 90 percent of our planet’s biosphere and is home to some of the world’s most dazzling creatures, which thrive amid extreme pressures, scarce food supplies, and frigid temperatures. Living things down here behave in remarkable and surprising ways, and cutting-edge technologies are shedding new light on these critically important ecosystems. This beautifully illustrated book leads you down into the canyons, trenches, and cold seeps of the watery abyss, presenting the deep ocean and its inhabitants as you have never seen them before. Features a wealth of breathtaking photos, illustrations, and graphics Gives a brief and accessible history of deep-sea exploration Explains the basics of oceanography Covers a marvelous diversity of undersea organisms Describes habitats ranging from continental slopes to hydrothermal vents and abyssal plains Discusses humanity’s impacts on the deep ocean, from fisheries and whaling to global climate change and acidification Written by a team of world-class scientists

Among the deep-sea marine invertebrates, pycnogonids and crustaceans represent ecologically important and most diverse groups of species. Yet both are still poorly understood. Sampling and exploring operations off the west and east coast of the Americas has significantly increased in the last two decades. However such operations are very costly and limited in number and frequency. In countries like Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru, the United States of America, and El Salvador a large effort has been made to explore the deep-sea resources and the rich diversity of the communities, resulting in a better understanding of the natural ecosystems on both coasts of America. Pycnogonids and many groups of deep-sea crustaceans have been intensively studied, from the smallest animals, like the mostly unknown benthic copepods to the largest decapods. This book presents new and updated information on various groups of deep-sea pycnogonids and crustaceans occurring off the American continent. Offering a valuable reference resource for scientists interested in this fascinating fauna, it includes review papers and new data on the deep-sea communities occurring off the USA, Mexico, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Brazil and Argentina, as well as in larger areas in both the East Pacific and the West Atlantic. As such it covers most of the current deep-water research in Latin America.

This book is an introductory guide to the rich, wonderful, and profound world of Buddhist similes. The Buddha used many similes as a skilful means to facilitate the understanding of teachings that otherwise could appear overly abstruse and dry to his listeners. Thus, contemplation of the similes and the explanations as given in this book will widen and deepen one’s understanding of the Teaching of the Buddha.
