MUCK -- Life at the Bottom is a representative glimpse at the biodiversity of the marine life that lives in the "muck" at the bottom of Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Photographs of closely related species are grouped together and illustrate myriad variations, unique reproductive and child rearing behavior, mimicry, camouflage and other unique characteristics.

Indices of common and scientific names are followed by a bibliography to assist the reader in learning more about the unusual and rare marine inhabitants of Lembeh Strait
