Marine Biology

This course will touch upon a number of different subfields of biological study (including biochemistry, physiology, zoology, botany, and ecology) within the context of the ocean environment. We will begin by studying the geologic and meteorologic processes that create the oceans and affect their environment. All marine life “fits” into the environmental framework of the ocean; it is therefore important to have a firm understanding of what that framework is. We will also look at the specific environmental challenges facing marine life as well as the physiological and behavioral adaptations that have resulted. We will take a broad look at oceanic biodiversity before examining the interconnections between species in marine communities. The course will conclude with a quick look at current research in Marine Biology.

Stephen Palumbi, senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, talks about “The Death and Life of Monterey Bay.” This is an environmental success story about the revitalization of Monterey Bay after its ecology was ravaged by overfishing and the massive fish cannery industry. It’s a one hour lecture and well worth watching from beginning to end.
