MEFB 500 (01) - Coastal Habitat Field Research Methods

Coastal Habitat Field Research

Credits: 4.0
Term: Summer 2021 - Shoals Summer Session (05/24/2021 - 08/16/2021)
Grade Mode: Letter Grading
Class Size:   15  
CRN: 70222
Special Fees: $5,492.00
This two-week intensive field based course is intended for students who wish to explore and gain proficiency in various research and assessment methods of terrestrial and aquatic plant communities of the Isles of Shoals and nearby coastal habitats of the Seacoast and Great Bay Estuary. Topics covered will include quantitative surveys methods, GIS based an aerial (UAV) mapping of plant communities, taxonomy and systematics of major vascular taxa, island biogeography, rare species ecology and conservation, and the management of invasive species. Through both field and classroom exercises, we will use a variety of sampling protocols to document the existing plant communities, contribute to ongoing plant community studies, investigate the floristic changes that the Isles of Shoals have experienced from past to present, and use these data to predict trends into the future to help preserve their unique flora. Student will use skills developed in class to design and implement brief field research project in a related topic of their choice. Prereq: BIOL 411 or BIOL 412. Permission required. Special fee. (Summers only at Shoals Marine Lab.)

MEFB 506 (01) - Marine Parasitology and Disease

Marine Parasitology

Credits: 4.0
Term: Summer 2021 - Shoals Summer Session (05/24/2021 - 08/16/2021)
Grade Mode: Letter Grading
Class Size:   20  
CRN: 70887
Special Fees: $5,492.00
This course will focus on one of the most diverse and fascinating groups of marine organisms: parasites. The course will explore marine parasites and pathogens at multiple levels, including: (1) the evolutionary perspective with an emphasis on coevolutionary relationships; (2) parasitic diseases and life cycles (from simple to complex); (3) taxonomic and phylogenetic understanding of parasite and host groups (with a focus on metazoan parasites and hosts); (4) ecological implications of parasitism in marine systems at the population, community, and ecosystem levels; and (5) the effects of human induced global change on parasitism in marine communities. Prereq: Biol 411, BIOL 412. Special Fee. (Summers only at Shoals Marine Lab.)
