Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
True or false?: All anyone wanting to become a marine biologist needs is some classes and a passion for swimming in the ocean. Simplistic as this question is, some young readers have no idea that marine biologists do much more that swim about in salty waters. This book, part of the "On the Job" series, is packed full of information about this little-known profession. Thompson provides a definition of what a marine biologist is, as well as information about preparation and education requirements, working with other aquatic specialists, what a day's work may involve, what a research trip includes, what challenging areas of marine systems need urgent study, and so on. The colorful format features a facsimile of a field notebook, an equipment checklist, a list of the types of required classes, checklists of job locations and opportunities, a glossary, an index, and a list of books and web sites for further reading. Illustrations are colorful and compelling. Reviewer: Judy Crowder
