MarS 228 Marine Ecosystems

Structure and Function of marine ecosystems - This course gives an overview of marine ecology. It addresses the global production and distribution of plankton and fish, the vertical distribution of both pelagic and benthic organisms as well as predator-prey interactions among organisms in different habitats. It describes ecosystems from the intertidal zone to the deep sea and outlines ecological principles governing the distributions of organisms and their adaptations to be successful in the different environments. Marine Life (MarS 221) is a prerequisite for this course.
