An intensive, field-oriented course covering the biological, chemical, geological and physical features of coasts and seas. Lectures and field work emphasize the taxonomy, ecology and behavior of marine species from habitats such as coral reefs, mangroves, mudflats, rocky shores, salt marshes and sandy beaches. Students will employ sampling techniques to study factors that influence the abundance and distribution of marine species. Primary scientific literature will be used to critically evaluate the ecological role and adaptations of species in the major habitats of the selected geographic region for the course.
