A Bibliography of Popular Books on the Marine Environment and Wetlands Ecology.
Schweitzer, James P.
This is an annotated bibliography of popular books on the marine environment and wetlands ecology, published by the Marine Environment Curriculum Study at the University of Delaware. The bibliography resulted from the work of a special review panel consisting of a professional biologist, a professor of science education, and 15 teachers. Approximately 200 books were reviewed and grouped into three categories: poor, fair, and excellent. A basic list of about 100 from the latter two categories was compiled. The list is not comprehensive, for many excellent books were eliminated because they were no longer in print. The selections were judged to contain teaching and background material useful in K-12 marine studies and wetlands programs. Organized in two parts--"The Marine Environment" and "Wetlands Ecology"--each entry provides complete bibliographical information including publisher's price and appropriate grade level. A directory of publishers is appended. (LK)
