2-Book Set For several years now, older students have asked us to produce a marine biology course. Dr. Wile's area of expertise is definitely not in that area, but we have found someone who is a homeschooler and a marine biologist. Her name is Sherri Seligson, and she has written a marine biology course for us in the format of our "Exploring Creation With" series! The course was field-tested last year with more than 100 homeschool students, and it is now available for general use. In order to take this course, students must have completed a first-year biology course, preferably Exploring Creation With Biology. This course concentrates on marine wildlife and marine habitats. It provides a survey of members of each biological kingdom that live in marine environments. The student will learn about the microscopic organisms that make life in the ocean possible, including details about their interesting habits and life cycles. The student will also learn about the anatomy of many macroscopic marine creatures such as clams, starfish, and sharks. The student will then learn how these creatures and their physical surroundings form marine ecosystems such as intertidal zones, estuaries, coral reefs, continental shelf communities, epipelagic communities, and deep-ocean communities. The course ends with a study of marine resources and our relationship with the sea. This course contains many experiments, some of which require microscope equipment, while others require dissection equipment.
