The oceans harbour a greater diversity of life than any other environmental realm. In this course you will learn about the diversity of marine ecosystems, the species inhabiting them, and the physical and chemical factors influencing marine ecosystems. We shall explore rocky shores, sandy beaches, estuaries, mangroves, salt marshes, seagrass, reefs and open-water ecosystems. We will emphasise the seminal contributions that marine ecology has made to the broader field of ecology, and teach you fundamental skills in the scientific investigation of marine and coastal ecosystems.
