Marine Biology - Textbook
After taking the Apologia Biology course, you have the option of taking the new Exploring Creation with Marine Biology course. This text was written by a marine biologist who is also a homeschooler! Author Sherri Seligson uses the same familiar conversational style as the other Apologia courses. The course concentrates on marine wildlife and marine habitats and provides a survey of the members of each biological kingdom that live in marine environments. Dust off your microscope from first-year biology because you’ll need it again for this course! You will be using a new set of prepared slides and dissecting a new set of marine critters. The new dissection specimens are the dogfish shark, clam, and starfish, and you’ll also study brine shrimp eggs, natural sponge, and a non-living coral specimen. Some of the topics you will study are 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.Textbook only.
