This collection of more than 200 drawings by Anthony D'Attilio is an exciting introduction to the complex and fascinating field of plant and animal marine life. No matter which seashore you live near or visit on vacation, you will probably find some of its inhabitants represented in these pages. Mr. D'Attilio prepared these drawings carefully and accurately, but in the interest of making the plates as decorative as possible he did allow himself some artistic license. Thus the specimens on any one plate are not necessarily to be found in the same body of water, and occasionally their relative sizes are not strictly correct. You may be surprised, when you look at the covers of this book, by the wide range of colors and tones nature has subtly intermingled in her marine creatures. You can imitate this natural coloration, or you can use your imagination in selecting colors. The contour lines provided in the drawings can be used as guidelines for the subtle blending of colors, as in nature, or as sharp demarcation lines between areas of flat color, if your aim is more decorative. Whichever method you choose, enjoy coloring and creating for yourself either true-to-life depictions of marine plants and animals, or more fanciful creatures for framing and collages. The varied specimens in this collection represent some of the most common and some of the most exotic forms of sea life in the oceans of the world. We hope these drawings and the identifications of the creatures will lead you to a deeper interest in this fascinating area. You may then want to consult the more detailed field guides to marine life in your own area.

Oceanography and Marine Biology preserves the basic elements of the physical, chemical, and geological aspects of the marine sciences, and merges those fundamentals into a broader framework of marine biology and ecology. I have found that this approach works: my class of 350 students fills every semester it is offered, with students on waiting lists to get in. But existing textbooks on oceanography or marine biology address the companion field only cursorily: very few pages in oceanography texts are devoted to marine biology, and vice versa. This new book overcomes that imbalance, bringing these disparate marine science text formats closer together, giving them more equal weight, and introducing more effectively the physical sciences by showing students with everyday examples how such concepts form the foundation upon which to build a better understanding of the marine environment in a changing world.

This easy-to-read guide describes the unusual creatures and remarkable features that abound along the beaches of the magnificent Pacific Northwest coast. It's packed with color and black/white photos, beautiful, detailed illustrations, and fascinating facts that are sure to enlighten and entertain. This guide divides the coast into specific marine habitats - sandy beaches, estuaries, bays, lagoons, and rocky intertidal zones. It then examines the unique aspects of each habitat and identifies and describes the most common, conspicuous organisms that you're likely to encounter. Seaweeds, crabs, snails, worms, starfish, mussels, barnacles - or for you scientific types, cnidarians, crustaceans, polychaetes, and gastropods - are just a few of the many types of fauna and flora covered in this guide. In addition, the book presents helpful tips on improving your beachcombing skills by knowing where and when to look for these wonderful critters. There's also information on the marine mammals and Pacific salmon that live along the Pacific Northwest coast.

Why is Earth called the Blue Planet? Because there’s so much water on the surface that the planet looks blue from outer space! Marine biology is the study of the plant and animal life in salt water environments, from microscopic plankton to the largest animal on earth, the blue whale. In Marine Biology: Cool Women Who Dive readers ages 9 to 12 explore the careers of three women who work within the science of marine biology—Natalie Arnoldi, Ashanti Johnson, and Lauren Mullineaux. Nomad Press books in the Girls in Science series supply a bridge between girls’ interests and their potential futures by investigating science careers and introducing women who have succeeded in science. Compelling stories of real-life scientists provide readers with role models that they can look toward for examples of success. Marine Biology uses engaging content, links to primary sources, and essential questions to whet kids’ appetites for further exploration and study. This book explores the history of marine biology, the women who made key discoveries, and the multitude of varied careers in this exciting and important field. Marine Biology encourages both boys and girls to envision what lies beneath the miles of water that make up our planet.
