Do you think you know everything there is to know about marine biology? What else could there be to know? You’ve covered invertebrates, algae, and ecosystems…what more could there be?
Prof. Emma has great news for you! There’s always more to learn about marine biology!
In this year-long course, we will explore marine biology topics in greater depth. Students who have been in Prof. Emma’s courses before may recognize some of the topics covered–but during this class we will investigate them in greater detail.
Topics will include:
- Marine Invertebrate Phyla
- Groups of Marine Vertebrates
- Marine Flowering Plants
- r- and K-selection
- Settlement & Recruitment
- Marine Ecosystem Maintenance
- Marine Zonation
- Unusual Species
- And much, much more!
Students will complete virtual labs and read scientific papers to deepen their understanding of the material.
This is a high school level course based on college-level material. Students should be prepared to think deeply and complete high-level assignments.
Students who are interested in scientific illustration are invited to sign up for the companion course to In-Depth Marine Biology: Scientific Illustration for In-Depth Marine Biology!
