Bi 460 Marine Biology of the Deep Sea

The deep sea is the largest, but least well-known, living space on the planet. This upper-division Biology majors course provides students with in-depth knowledge of deep sea, its inhabitants and their diverse life history strategies, and the anthropogenic factors shaping the deep sea as we know it. Classes will alternate between lectures and student-led discussions. Students will be expected to have knowledge of general biology prior to the start of the course.
