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