Jeffrey S. Levinton's highly acclaimed Marine Biology is regarded by many as the most authoritative text for undergraduate marine biology courses. Characterized by exceptionally clear and conversational writing style and comprehensive coverage, the text offers a sophisticated presentation featuring organismal and ecosystem ecology topics from an evolutionary perspective. Over the course of two editions, Levinton has balanced his organismal and ecological focus by including the latest developments from the world of molecular biology and presenting more discussion of oceanic processes. This thoroughly revised third edition includes the latest research developments in a new four-color format. It provides increased coverage of molecular biology and physical oceanography; greater emphasis on human impacts on the oceans, fisheries, and global climate change; new coverage of deep sea biology and polar oceans; additional quantitative material interwoven in the text, examples, and end of chapter problems; and highlights on current research efforts in the field.
