BIOL 232/332: Field Marine Ecology

May 10–May 26, 2022 (Spring Session II course, travel in May)

Many major ecological concepts have roots in marine ecology and in experiments conducted in the intertidal zone. This course will take students to one of the most diverse coastal areas in North America and allow them to compare and contrast these habitats with terrestrial areas and the more familiar coastlines of New Jersey. The course will take place at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology (OIMB) in Charleston, Oregon, a marine field station associated with the University of Oregon. This field station is feet from the ocean and provides us with the capacity to conduct a range of laboratory experiments with live marine animals, most of which we could never do here at Moravian.
