Exploring Creation with Marine Biology
This course focuses on marine wildlife and habitats, providing a survey of members of each biological kingdom that live in underwater environments. Topics include microscopic organisms that make life in the ocean possible, the anatomy of macroscopic marine creatures such as clams, starfish, and sharks, and how these creatures form marine ecosystems such as intertidal zones, estuaries, coral reefs, continental shelf communities, epipelagic communities, and deep ocean communities.
This course contains some experiments that require a microscope and dissection equipment.
Note: This is an advanced course, but it does not help prepare students for the AP (Advanced Placement) biology exam since marine biology is a specific field of biology not covered in AP exams.
This course comes in 2 volumes: a hardcover student text that contains all student materials, study questions, photos, and illustrations and a softcover volume that contains answers to module study guides, tests, and test solutions.
Laboratory equipment: This course uses readily available items for all labs. A complete list is available in the text.
