  • An online chapter on molecular tools offers an overview of how new and old molecular tools are used in a wide range of marine-biological applications
  • A full archive of "Hot Topics," available on the Companion Website, includes brand-new content and previous editions' features
  • Chapter-by-chapter video guides help students visualize complex marine systems and bring marine biology concepts to life
  • The content has been significantly updated and consolidated, resulting in a leaner, more pedagogically sound text
