Publisher's Summary

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.

Extremely Good but Needs Support Material

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Any additional comments?

I am the Director of a nature center with a small natural history museum. This book was geared to fundementalist home-schoolers. I am not a Creationist, however I found the book extremely informative and well presented. I will likely purchase others in the "Exploring Creation . . . " series. One thing it did lack was illustrations and experiments which were referred to. Supplimentary material would have been a very serious plus.

Didn't see that it was a religious text

At first I liked it but then I realized it was a Christian book. It's hard to trust science that is mentioning a giant flood that has no evidence. while on the subject of plate tectonics.

Misleading Description

When I used a credit to get this book it hadn't even occurred to me that "Exploring Creation" referred to "Creation" in the theological sense. Nothing about the description of this book indicates that you are about to be subjected to hard science that is, at the close of each section, shoehorned into the context of western religious beliefs. If I had read the reviews then I would have found I wasn't the first to be taken in by this title. If you want a good marine biology book that focuses only on the science look elsewhere; if you do, in fact, want a book on marine biology that attempts to smooth over the stark discrepancies that geology and evolution pose to creationist belief then go for it.

This is BS

What would have made Exploring Creation with Marine Biology better?

Less of the creationist crap

What was most disappointing about Sherri Seligson’s story?

The creationist bit

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marrisa Leinart?

No one

Any additional comments?

Creationism and marine biology, now there's a dilemma....

Do not buy

This is really appalling and insulting. It is supposed to be a science book about marine biology, but it utterly destroys its own credibility by injecting creationist mysticism into the text. I did not want a biblical account of marine biology, but that is what this is.
