Discovering the Living Ocean provides an engaging, easy-to-read, and relevant marine biology manual for high school and community college students who have no previous background in biology. The approach uses a variety of exercises and activitiesMoreDiscovering the Living Ocean provides an engaging, easy-to-read, and relevant marine biology manual for high school and community college students who have no previous background in biology. The approach 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).

The manual also serves as a workbook designed for writing answers to the questions posed in each activity. The laboratory and field activities in Discovering the Living Ocean guide students in making close, detailed observations that lead to questions and then to hypotheses that can be developed and tested. A glossary defines unfamiliar terms used in the book and lab. 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.

The Teacher Guide includes lists of supplies, organisms, and equipment needed for each activity (and lists the sources of those materials)- provides lab safety considerations- offers suggestions for conducting the lab and/or field procedures- and recommends relevant websites and video resources.

The Teacher DVD contains additional video clips that may be used in assessment. The range of activities included in the text 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. Instructors can also customize the text through Bent Tree Press by cutting, re-ordering, or adding additional content to meet their classroom needs, with additional, customized artwork provided by Bent Tree Press.
