MBIO 208 Tropical Seas

This course introduces students to marine living systems with a focus on their diversity and their presence locally. The course provides students with an appreciation for marine systems by introducing general topical issues in marine science. Students will take part in classes that are hands-on and interactive using live organisms in aquaria as well as preserved specimens. Class discussions will allow students to actively relate to and learn about tropical marine science issues (e.g. latest research findings or news publications). This course will include field trips to nearby shores to engage students actively.
