Review "Levinton does an excellent job in introducing fundamental concepts and then exploring them using recent scientific literature."--Tara Duffy, Northeastern University Marine Biology been extremely useful in bridging the gap between students that lacked expertise in the marine field and gaining valuable insights to be successful in my classes. This is one of the few texts that has allowed me a more direct pathway for teaching students that have a limited background in the subject matter. -- Michael Franklin, California State University Northridge "This text approaches the eclectic topic of marine biology as a combination of functional biology of organisms and ecology. Marine Biology, Fifth Edition, succeeds in covering the topic in a comprehensive manner, while neither oversimplifying it nor adding too many specialized details."--Gail B. Hartnett , University of of New Haven Marine Biology is an effective teaching and learning treatise.
