What creatures live in the rocky intertidal? What challenges do they face, and how have they adapted to deal with those challenges? What ecological interactions take place within rocky intertidal ecosystems? These questions and more will be answered in our course!
Rocky intertidal ecosystems are wonderful places to conduct research and explore, particularly because they are so accessible. There’s a myriad of information available on rocky intertidal ecosystems, and we’ll dive right in (metaphorically—please do not attempt to dive into tide pools). Students will have the opportunity to complete a biological or ecological research proposal related to the rocky intertidal by the end of the course.
