(Perm Req)
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, S-F
Restriction: Permission of instructor.
Study of the interrelationships between individuals, their communities and environment. Explores the environmental biology of fish, feeding ecology, energetics and growth, population biology, reproduction and life history, and population and community interactions.
MEES684
Marine Microbial Ecology
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
The primary goal of this course is to become familiar with the diversity, ecology, and biogeochemical roles of Bacteria, Archaea, microbial Eukaryotes, viruses, and fungi in the marine environment. The course will also cover the latest discoveries in molecular microbial ecology. Each main topic will begin with a lecture and will be followed by a paper discussion. For the paper discussions, each student will present selected papers specified in the syllabus (or by consensus with the course instructors). Students will also participate in class discussions.
