Summary: The new, sixth edition of Marine Biology covers the basics of marine biology and takes a global, non-regional perspective, emphasizing that the world's oceans and seas are an integrated system that cannot be understood by looking in any one person's own backyard. For many students this is a new perspective. This introductory, one-semester text is designed for non-majors. Key Features

  • Updated c ...show moreontent throughout, reflecting recent events, new research, and changes in perspective.
  • NEW ¿Eye on Science¿ boxed readings throughout the book reflect current scientific research and technology in the field of marine biology. Sample topics include: ocean observing systems, deep-ocean drilling, female mimicry in cuttlefishes, restoration of seagrass beds, search for the giant squid, etc.
  • Marine Biology features a global, non-regional perspective. That the world's oceans and seas function as a vast, integrated system is among the most important messages of this book. One aspect of this global approach is the deliberate inclusion of examples from many different regions and ecosystems, so as many students as possible will find something relevant to their local areas.
  • Outstanding art program, illustrated by two professional illustrators with a strong reputation in the science field: Bill Ober and Claire Garrison.
  • A collection of eight laboratories and field investigations in marine biology have been specially written to be used with Marine Biology. Each of the exercises includes review questions that integrate information learned in the laboratory or field with material covered by the text.
