Apologia Exploring Creation with Marine Biology - Full Course on CDISBN: 9781932012668
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. The CD-ROM version of this course contains everything that is in the textbook course plus multimedia add-ons like word pronunciations, videos, and animations. Please note that this CD does not read the course to the student. It is the book on CD, formatted as a website.Students answer the 'on your own' questions as they read through the CD.
