Jeffrey Levinton

  • Most readable text. Clear, thorough explanations written in an highly-engaging style that students actually enjoy reading
  • Principles-driven approach. Focus on interaction of basic biological principles makes the material digestible and governs the text's three major themes: functional biology; biodiversity; and ecological processes
  • Philosophy of getting students excited. The author introduces highly relevant real-world topics as well as the latest scientific discoveries to engage students' interest and imaginations
  • Unique Chapter 1 "Sounding the Deep" introduces the scientific method and focuses attention on how science is done, rather than on the memorization of facts
  • Robust pedagogical support. "Key Concept" headings serve as running summaries within chapters; "Basic Facts" succinctly summarize all-you-need-to-know about various marine organisms; thought-provoking end-of-chapter exercises get students thinking critically, “Going Deeper” boxes highlight and segregate quantitative coverage
  • Hot-topics. A beloved feature of the text that ties Levinton's high-level concepts to approachable, engaging examples.
