Apologia: Exploring Creation with Marine Biology
Hardback; ISBN: 9781932012583
Exploring Creation With Marine Biology concentrates on marine wildlife and marine habitats. It provides a survey of members of each biological kingdom that live in marine environments. The student will learn about the microscopic orrganisms that make life in the ocean possible, including details about their interesting habits and life cycles. The student will also learn about the anatomy of many macroscopic marine creatures such as clams, starfish, and sharks. The student will then learn how these creatures and their physical surroundings form marine ecosystems such as intertidal zones, estuaries, coral reefs, continental shelf communities, epipelagic communities, and deep-ocean communities. The course ends with a study of marine resources and our relationship with the sea. There are many experiments, some of which require microscope equipment, while others require dissection equipment. This is a hardbound student text, which contains all student material, on-your-own questions and solutions, laboratory exercises, and chapter study guides.
