Now in full color, Laboratory and Field Investigations in Marine Life is a unique marine biology laboratory and field manual that engages students in the excitement and challenges of understanding marine organisms and the environments in which they live. With activities designed to encourage students to develop their own powers of critical observation and analysis, students will benefit from a thorough examination of topics such as the physical and chemical properties of seawater, marine microbes, algae, and a wide variety of invertebrate and vertebrate animals. The new, more convenient spiral binding allows the manual to lay flat on lab tables while students work, and they can easily tear out pages to submit for a grade. Laboratory and Field Investigations in Marine Life, Eleventh Edition is an ideal resource to accompany Introduction to the Biology of Marine Life, Eleventh Edition and the clear choice for an engaging, hands-on exploration of marine biology.

James L. Sumich, PhD-Professor Emeritus, Biology Department, Grossmont College

James L. Sumich received his M.S. in Biological Oceanography at Oregon State University, joined the biology faculty at Grossmont College, and then returned to Oregon State for a Ph.D. For his Ph.D. thesis, he studied the interactions between newborn gray whale calves and their mothers and the way each budgets its energy expenditures during the period of calf nursing.

He has taught marine mammal biology classes for graduates and undergraduates at San Diego State University, University of San Diego, and Oregon State University, where he continues to teach, as the requirements of retirement permit. His retirement activities include continued research and writing on gray whale behavior and energetics. He recently marked the publication of the second edition revision of a textbook on the evolutionary biology of marine mammals, coauthored with Dr. Annalisa Berta and Dr. Kit Kovacs. He lives in a home he has built with his wife, Caren, in the woods near Corvallis, Oregon.
