Course Description: BI 457/557 SUBTIDAL AND DEEP-SEA ECOLOGY (8 quarter credits)
This team-taught course is an overview of the organisms, habitats and ecological processes occurring deeper than the intertidal zone, from algal-dominated systems in the shallow subtidal to deep-water systems on the continental shelf and slope, submarine canyons, seamounts, abyssal plains, methane seeps, hydrothermal vents and hadal trenches. Laboratory activities and field trips will strongly supplement lecture material and assigned reading; field work and projects will involve the collection and analysis of offshore trawl, dredge, core, ROV and camera sled data, as well as snorkel surveys using GoPro cameras of nearshore kelp beds, seagrass meadows, and under-rock communities. Weather permitting, we anticipate a cruise to the continental slope on a larger research vessel. Meets 8:30 am – 5:00 pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Instructors: Craig Young and Cynthia Trowbridge
