BIOEB305

Marine Ecology

An introduction to the structure and functioning of marine ecosystems. The paper explores the fundamentals of ecology (e.g. disturbance/recovery, recruitment, organism interactions with their environment, nutrient cycles, limits on productivity) in a marine setting. We also cover human impacts on marine environments including fisheries as well as the design of ecological surveys and experiments. A weekend field trip and practical classes are integral to the paper.
