Levinton's Marine Biology is highly acclaimed and regarded by many as the best, most authoritative text for the sophomore/junior/senior marine biology course. The text is characterized by its exceptionally clear and conversational writing style, comprehensive coverage, and sophisticated presentation featuring organismal and ecosystem ecology topics from an evolutionary perspective. Over the course of five editions, Jeff Levinton has balanced his organismal
and ecological focus by including the latest developments from the world of molecular biology, global climate change, and oceanic processes.

Jeffrey S. Levinton is distinguished professor of ecology and evolution at Stony Brook University (PhD Yale, 1971). His research focuses mainly on the population and community-level processes of marine-bottom species, including such important East Coast species as bivalves (like oysters) and fiddler crabs.
[O]verall, it is a great text and I have enjoyed using it for years. [...] The writing is exceptionally accessible in my opinion. The breadth of topics, that are critical to modern ecology is significant, even as I am hoping for more. * -Sarah Cohen, San Francisco State University * This Marine Biology text's organismal focus is enhanced by including latest research and oceanic processes. The text has a conversational writing style and it serves as an educational tool for students at various levels of preparedness. * -Sabine Alshuth, Nova Southeastern University * A comprehensive and logically organized marine biology textbook that would work well for a marine biology/ecology course that has a majority of natural science students enrolled. The textbook goes into good depth and detail, which is important for students to have a reference source and as an added perspective to lecture material presented. Research presented is associated with people and places, which will help students make a connection. * -Michael Berger, Washington State University *
