Read Marine Biology for the non-biologist

About: If you want a great understanding of life in the ocean then read Andrew Caine’s Marine Biology for Non-Biologists. It’s a comprehensive description of marine life, written in a clear, straightforward, humorous and entertaining style. Logically presented, it’s a book you can read from cover to cover, or dip in and out of. It provides not only a great way to get students and non-specialists interested in marine life but also academics from other disciplines.

The book covers all major groups of underwater creatures. From the soft-bodied cnidarians (jellyfish anemones and corals) to the crustaceans (shrimps, crabs, lobsters). And from the molluscs (the shellfish and squid) to the echinoderms (starfish and sea urchins).

Learn how coral reefs are made and how much humans depend on them. Discover the importance of mangroves and hydrothermal vents and what life is like in the polar sea. Find out about complex ecosystems, from algae and plankton all the way up to whales. Feeding habits, bizarre behaviours, dangerous creatures that could upset your day… Marine Biology for the Non-Biologist has it all and more. An ideal read for anyone with an interest in the sea
