What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

If you believe both the evolutionists and the futurists, then you know that our heritage does indeed lie in the seas of the world . . . . and our future just might! It took hundreds of millions of years to produce the life that now inhabits the seas — eons of time in which that developing, evolving, and diversifying life reached a state of adjustment and balance with its water surroundings. And, jet. though man has sailed over the surface of the oceans for thousands of years, has explored nearly all the land areas of the world, and has even set foot on our satellite, the moon, we still know pathetically little about our potentially richest and yet most alien en­ vironment. The mysteries of the sea and its dark terrors are slowly being shed bit by research bit, but the inexorable onslaughts on its environment may find many of its precious secrets gone before we even begin the race in earnest to discover them. The former two volumes competently lay out for the non-scientist what little we yet know about the oceans and their life. THE SEAS AND OCEANS is a well-illustrated, pocket-sized encyclopedia of the nature of the seas and man’s role in them. LIFE IN THE OCEANS zeros in on man’s use — and misuse — of the seas — as a source of food reservoir of minerals and vehicle to other parts of the world. The latter two books. SHELLS and THE FASCINATING WORLD OF THE SEA are both lavishly illustrated guides to the strange animals of the sea known as mollusks and to their marvelous shells. Where SHELLS covers the evolution of these remarkable creatures more thoroughly, FASCINATING WORLD provides a more comprehensive look at their biology. Either would be appropriate gifts for the novice collector. D.G.H.
