Synopsis

The Facts on File Marine Science Handbook by Scott McCutcheon, Bobbi McCutcheon

The Facts On File Marine Science Handbook is the ideal primer for middle and high school students on the subject of marine science. In this one-stop resource, almost 1,500 key terms relating to marine science are presented in a glossary, along with approximately 250 biographies of individuals who have made important contributions to marine science. A useful chronology composed of nearly 200 entries describes significant milestones in the development of marine science from antiquity to the present, and a selection of easy-to-read charts and tables adds a visual component that allows students to see concrete representations of selected concepts presented in the work. This volume includes a preface, introduction, index, and bibliography of titles and websites to guide further research as well as an appendix, Prefixes and Suffixes of the Marine Environment.
