Frances Dipper has always loved the sea, in spite of being brought up on a farm in deepest Warwickshire. She started her marine journey at Port Erin in the Isle of Man studying for her PhD. She then spent a few years with the Nature Conservancy Council, based in Huntingdon, doing diving surveys of marine life around the UK. She is now a marine consultant, lecturer and author and has been studying marine life for over 40 years. She has dived extensively in the UK, Middle East and Far East. She has run numerous expeditions and courses for divers and naturalists and has written many books on marine life and ocean environments for children and adults. In 2003 her Dorling Kindersley children’s book, Guide to the Oceans, won the Royal Society Aventis Prize for junior Science Books. Her most ambitious (and largest) recent book is The Marine World: A Natural History of Marine Life published in 2016. She is a long-term member of the Porcupine Marine Natural History Society (PMNHS).

Frances writes in every issue of British Wildlife as author of the marine life column in the wildlife reports.
