Describes the work of a marine biologist.

Marine Biologist

Marine biologists study tide pools, seaweed, crustaceans, and marine mammals.
They work on coasts and in deep seas. They can be found at the water's surface
and on the ocean's floor. Oceans and seas cover 70 percent of Earth's surface.

A fascinating guide to a career in marine biology written by bestselling journalist Virginia Morell and based on the real-life experiences of an expert in the field—essential reading for someone considering a path to this profession. For the last two decades, Dr. Robin Baird has spent two months out of each year aboard a twenty-four-foot Zodiac boat in the waters off the big island of Hawai'i, researching the twenty-five species of whales and dolphins that live in the Pacific Ocean. His life may seem an impossible dream—but his career path from being the first person in his family to graduate college to becoming the leading expert on some of Hawai'i's marine mammals was full of twists and turns. Join Baird aboard his Zodiac for a candid look at the realities of life as a research scientist, from the ever-present struggles to secure grants and publish new data, to the joys of helping to protect the ocean and its inhabitants. You’ll also learn pro tips, like the unexpected upsides to not majoring in marine biology and the usefulness of hobbies like sailing, birdwatching, photography, and archery. (You’ll need good aim to tag animals with the tiny recording devices that track their movements.) Becoming a Marine Biologist is an essential guide for anyone looking to turn a passion for the natural world into a career. This is the most valuable informational interview you’ll have—required reading for anyone considering this challenging yet rewarding path.

INTRODUCTION TO MARINE BIOLOGY distinguishes itself from other texts at this introductory level by taking an ecological approach to the study of marine biology, by providing succinct coverage of key topics, and through the use of the best illustrations and photos currently available. In this edition two co-authors have joined George KarleskintJames Small from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, and Richard Turner from the Florida Institute of Technology. Their experience in coastal environments nicely compliments Karleskint's clear, concise student-friendly writing style. Users will also discover that the level of the text has been broadened with additional coverage of plant, microbial, planktonic, and animal biology. In support of this emphasis, new "In Perspective" summary tables have been added to each of the marine organism chapters to provide a summary of important ecological and biological aspects of various marine organisms. Even with this broadened emphasis, this edition of INTRODUCTION TO MARINE BIOLOGY remains exceptionally readable. The textual material has been broken into small paragraph sections with more headings for ease of navigation, and "In Summary" statements have been added to the end of each main heading within the chapter, making it easy for students to check their understanding before reaching the end of the chapter. Furthermore, the authors have added more words to the glossary, many new illustrations, and over one hundred new photos. This second edition also boasts an increased "ecological focus" through the addition of discussions on "ecological roles and relationships."

The oceans are our planet's most distinctive and imposing natural habitat. They cover 71 percent of its surface; support a remarkably diverse and exquisitely adapted array of life forms, from microscopic viruses, bacteria, and plankton to the largest existing animals; and possess many of Earth's most significant, intriguing, and inaccessible ecosystems. In an era in which humans are significantly altering the global environment, the oceans are undergoing rapid and profound changes. The study of marine biology is thus taking on added importance and urgency as people struggle to understand and manage these changes to protect our marine ecosystems. Healthy oceans produce half of the oxygen we breathe; stabilize our climate; create ecosystems that protect our coasts from storms; provide us with abundant food; and host diverse organisms that provide us with natural products for medicine and biotechnology. In this Very Short Introduction, marine biologist Philip Mladenov provides an accessible and up-to-date overview of marine biology, offering a tour of marine life and marine processes that ranges from the unimaginably abundant microscopic organisms that drive the oceans' food web to the apex predators that we exploit for food; from polar ocean ecosystems to tropical coral reefs; and from the luxurious kelp beds of the coastal ocean to deep-ocean hydrothermal vents where life exists without the energy of the sun. Throughout the book he considers the human impacts on marine life including overfishing, plastic and nutrient pollution, the spread of exotic species, and ocean warming and acidification. He discusses the threats these pose to our welfare, and the actions required to put us on a path to a more sustainable relationship with our oceans so that they can be restored and protected for future generations. Mladenov concludes with a new chapter offering an inspiring vision for the future of our oceans in 2050 that can be realised if we are wise enough to accelerate actions already underway and be bold with implementing new approaches. The next decade will decide the state of the oceans that we leave behind for future generations. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.
