Marine Biology (3803ENV)

NOTE: The course is run as a one-week intensive at a remote field station in week 7 of the semester, with some lecture content on two weekends prior to the course. The course complements other marine subjects offered in the Marine Biology major, by emphasizing processes and habitats typical of oceanic settings, in particular coral reef environments. Areas that will be discussed include: ocean currents and their influence on climate; pelagic, continental shelf and deep sea biology; coral reef ecosystems; marine resource exploitation and management. Assessment is by assignments (including a group research project conducted at a remote field station) and an examination shortly after the field component. Places for this course are limited, and priority will be given to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science, Marine Biology major, and the Bachelor of Marine Science, for whom it is a core requirement. Students should also note that there are additional costs associated with this course to cover transport and food expenses at the field station.
