You must have a college education in science, majoring in biology. The most used form of mathematics in marine biology is statistics. > what kind of salary range and benefits can a marine biologist expect? Very little, especially if in academia. It usually ranges from $25,000 up to 100,000 (in very special cases that involves administration). If working for the private sector there may be better paid jobs in areas such as fisheries. > what is your daily routine, and when do you actually use math in it? Routine varies greatly. Some marine biologists are strongly field oriented; others are more lab oriented, and then there are the ones who are more theoretical. Math is used generally to analyze the data you collect. > thank you for your time! > > sincerely, > dariana > > Free web-based email, Forever, From anywhere! > http://www.mailexcite.com Best wishes, Aldemaro Romero, Ph.D.
