Marine Ecology and Evolution

Biology 301

Spring 2017

 
 

This is the website for the lecture portion of Biology 301, Marine Ecology and Evolution.  If you want information about the lab (301L), you need to log in to Laulima, where you will find the lab manual.


Marine Ecology and Evolution is a class that will introduce you to the dominant biotic and abiotic forces responsible for creating patterns of organismal diversity in the sea.  The course is similar to many marine biology classes but it has a very strong focus on understanding how ecological processes and evolutionary mechanisms act in the marine environment.

 

Welcome to the Class!
