BIO 210 Introduction to Marine Biology

Fall Semesters

This course takes an ecological approach to studying marine biology by focusing on the environmental characteristics, adaptations of organisms, and the communities found in the major marine ecosystems such as rocky shore, estuary, salt marsh, sandy beach, and coral reef. The course places more emphasis on the biotic communities found in each of these environments rather than the chemical and physical aspects of those environments. The impact of humans’ influence on these environments is also studied. Not open to high school students. 2 hours lecture. Lab consists of field trips/TBA (BIO211).
