BIOL-007 Ecology and the Oceans
Fall for 2008-2009
This course will introduce non-science majors to life in the oceans. We will use ecological concepts to understand marine organisms, their environments, and related environmental issues, as well as gain an appreciation for how scientists study the oceans. The course consists of four parts: (1) the Chesapeake Bay as an example of an ecologic system and the effects of human activities, (2) production and food chains in the open oceans, (3) interactions among different species on rocky shores, and (4) biodiversity of coral reefs. This course satisfies the general education requirement for a science course. Biology majors or minors may not enroll.
