Unformatted text preview: 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 wont 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 nicheor one that is just really cool. you feel epitomizes their success in their particular nicheor one that is just really cool....
