Synopsis

Eugenie Clark Marine Biologist by Ronald A. Reis

Tracing the path of one of the world's leading experts on sharks and marine life, Eugenie Clark: Marine Biologist provides career information on marine biologists and divers through this exciting story. Eugenie Clark, nicknamed the Shark Lady, is one of the world's most famous marine biologists and leading experts on sharks. After expressing an interest in aquatic life as a child, Clark pursued studies in zoology during the 1940s, a time when opportunities for women in science were limited. Clark's hard work and determination have taken her around the world on countless diving and research missions, allowing her to meet with royalty, work beside other leading scientists, and even ride on the back of a whale shark. Although Clark has retired from her teaching post at the University of Maryland, she continues to dive and conduct research on various species of fish.
