MSCI 445: Projects in Marine Ecology

Course description

Marine Ecology 445 is a lecture and field-based exploration of marine ecological concepts and theory using the diverse ecosystems of Monterey Bay as a living laboratory. Students witness and learn how organisms interact with one another and their environments, and see how these factors govern the distribution and abundance of species within marine systems. This group project-based course can fulfill the Marine Science major capstone requirement with co-enrollment in MSCI 410. [(Prereq: MSCI 340 and MSCI 370 and (MSCI 345 or BIO 345) and (MSCI 350 or ENVS 350) with C- or better)]
