Laboratory and Field Investigations in Marine LifeAuthors: Virginia L. Cass-Dudley, Gordon Dudley, James L. Sumich
Now in full color, Laboratory and Field Investigations in Marine Life is a unique marine biology laboratory and field manual that engages students in the excitement and challenges of understanding marine organisms and the environments in which they live. With activities designed to encourage students to develop their own powers of critical observation and analysis, students will benefit from a thorough examination of topics such as the physical and chemical properties of seawater, marine microbes, algae, and a wide variety of invertebrate and vertebrate animals. The new, more convenient spiral binding allows the manual to lay flat on lab tables while students work, and they can easily tear out pages to submit for a grade.
Features and Benefits:
Each lab is designed for a three-hour lab period, and can be adapted for shorter time periods.
Field studies are grouped at the end of the manual to provide a systematic set of observational procedures.
Includes a broad offering of anatomic, physiological, taxonomic, and ecological studies.
