About this product
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. This introductory text takes a global approach in demonstrating how the oceans function as a part of a global, integrated system. Using examples from numerous regions and ecosystems worldwide, the book seeks to illustrate the ocean's importance to humanity.
