ENVSCI 325 - Introduction to Biological Oceanography

3 Credit(s) | Lecture |
Course can be counted for credit once

Biological oceanography is a field of study that seeks to understand what controls the distribution and abundance of different types of marine life, and how living organisms influence and interact with processes in the oceans. These include processes from those that occur at the molecular level, such as photosynthesis, respiration, and cycling of essential nutrients, to those that are large-scale such as effects of ocean currents on marine productivity.
