Describing herself as a ?science interpreter,? Mary explains scientific research and environmental issues in ways that children and the general public can understand.

Jeffrey L. Rotman is one of the world's leading underwater photographers. Born in Boston, he learned to dive and began shooting underwater photographs in the cold, often murky waters of the North Atlantic. Relentless in his pursuit of perfection, he combines an artist's eye with a naturalist's knowledge of his subjects. The result is a unique and inimitable assortment of images that blur the line between art and science. His work has been featured on television and in books and magazines worldwide, including Life, Time, Smithsonian, Natural History, The New York Times Magazine, and National Geographic.
