The laboratory companion to Introduction to the Biology of Marine Life by James L. Sumich and John F. Morrissey, this laboratory manual further engages students in the excitement and challenges of understanding marine organisms and the environments in which they live. Students will benefit from a more thorough examination of the topics introduced in the text and lecture through observation and critical thinking activities in the Laboratory and Field Investigations in Marine Life. Also, the lab manual includes suggested topics for additional investigation, which provides flexibility for both instructors and for students to explore further various topics of interest. The only lab manual of its kind, Laboratory and Field Investigations in Marine Life is the ideal complement to any marine biology teaching and learning package!

Do intertidal organisms simply respond to the rise and fall of tides, or do they possess biological timing and navigation mechanisms that allow them to anticipate when conditions are most favourable? How are the patterns of growth, development and reproduction of some marine plants and animals related to changes in day-length or to phases of the moon? The author describes how marine organisms, from single cells to vertebrates, on sea shores, in estuaries and in the open ocean, have evolved inbuilt biological clockwork and synchronisation mechanisms which control rhythmic processes and navigational behaviour, permitting successful exploitation of highly variable and often hostile environments. Adopting a hypothesis-testing and experimental approach, the book is intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of marine biology, marine ecology, animal behaviour, oceanography and other biological sciences and also as an introduction for researchers, including physiologists, biochemists and molecular biologists entering the field of chronobiology.
