Biology 1080: Life in the Sea (Fall 2017) – Section 1003 Course Syllabus Instructor: Dr. Kevin J. Neves Office: 328 Life Science Building [email protected] Telephone: (419) 372-4835 Office Hours: 10:00-11:00 Wed; 10:30 – 11:30 Tues and Thurs or by appointment Lecture: 4:00-5:15 Tuesday and ThursdayEducation - Room 115 Text: Castro, P. and Huber, M. 2016. Marine Biology. 10th Edition. McGraw Hill Education. Course overview This course fulfils a BG Perspective requirement for Natural Sciences. The course provides an overview of introductory marine biology. We will explore the basics of marine science including chemistry, physics, biology, and ecology. We will also explore the diverse groups of animals from unicellular life to the largest found in the ocean. We will cover the dynamics in a select number of specific habitats. Lastly, we discuss the ways in which humans are reliant on the ocean and how we affect them. Through active participation in lecture and discussion, you will gain proficiency in understanding the complex processes that make up the ocean. Learning Outcomes Upon successful completion of this course, you will:- 1. Learn how basic sciences (biology, chemistry and physics) play a role in the ocean, how they impact the organisms found in the ocean and adaptations displayed by organisms to cope. 2. Have a basic understanding of the major groups of organisms found in the ocean and how they interact in various roles. 3. Be able to think critically about human impacts on the ocean and how to minimize these impacts.
