"Marine biologist Rachel Carson studied the use of chemical pesticides and their impact on ocean life. She was particularly concerned about DDT, and she wrote about it in her most famous book, Silent Spring. The public conversation that resulted from its publication in 1958 helped lead to restrictions on the use of pesticides in many parts of the world. For more information on protecting the environment, read Earth, another book in the Mission: Science series."
