Plasticus Maritimus: An Invasive Species | Author: Isabel Minhós Martins
When she was young, biologist Ana Pêgo didn't play in a backyard, but on a beach. She walked along the shore, looked at tide pools, and collected fossils. As she grew older, Pêgo noticed a new species at the seaside: plastic. She decided to collect it, study it, and give it a Latin name - Plasticus maritimus - to warn people of its dangers to our planet.
Inspired by Pêgo's life's work, and filled with engaging science and colorful photographs, this foundational look at ocean plastics explains why they are such an urgent contemporary issue. An artificial and almost indestructible species, Plasticus maritimus deserves to have its days numbered! Together, we can send it packing.
