About this title


Discovering the Living Ocean provides an engaging, easy-to-read, and relevant marine biology manual for students who have no previous background in biology.

This text uses a variety of exercises and activities that challenge and inspire students to learn more about the ocean and the multifaceted disciplines that marine biologists employ in their work: microbiology, zoology, phycology, anatomy, physiology, ecology, and oceanography (to name a few).

An accompanying instructional DVD helps students understand the procedures being used in each activity and takes them through the steps required to complete each lab. This DVD contains 21 high-quality video segments with 83 minutes of content, including 20 minutes of narrated video microscope footage highlighting anatomical features and behavioral traits of 27 species of marine plankton and meiofauna.

The wide range of activities allows instructors the flexibility to choose labs that are feasible for their classroom use, their students' abilities, their time constraints, and their resources in the classroom and the field.
