EEB 109 INTRODUCTION TO MARINE SCIENCE Summer 2007 TERM PAPERS/PRESENTATIONS _______________________________________________________________________ _ In this course, we will cover a wide range of marine species that live in oceanic or coastal habitats. Many of these organisms are quite unusual, and they often exhibit special adaptations in form and function to meet environmental challenges. Unfortunately, in a six-week introductory course, we won’t have time to learn much about the vast majority of them. Thus, the term paper is designed to expose you to many different animal and plant species without having to read about each one. The exercise is also designed to stimulate analytical thinking about how organisms work. In no more than 3 pages (double-spaced/12 pt font), give a broad overview of the species, including such information as its name, range, where it lives, ecology, basic morphological characteristics, etc.. Of these traits, select one interesting or unique aspect (e.g., feeding, reproduction, circulation, etc.) to discuss in detail – a characteristic that you feel epitomizes their success in their particular niche…or one that is just really cool.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
