Term: Summer 2022 - Shoals Summer Session (05/23/2022 - 08/05/2022)
Grade Mode: Letter Grading
Class Size:   10  
CRN: 71068
Special Fees: $5,554.00
This course explores the spread, establishment, and impact of invasive species. Students will become familiar with ecological and evolutionary theories pertaining to species invasions, and methods for assessing their spread and impact at local and global scales. The course examines: (1) ecological impacts and predictors of invasive species; (2) evolutionary insights of invasions; (3) taxonomic identification and survey techniques; (4) management implications of invasive species; and (5) the effects of global change on their spread. One semester of college biology or equivalent should be taken prior to this course. Special Fee.

Grade Mode: Letter Grading
Class Size:   10  
CRN: 70857
Special Fees: $5,554.00
The last 30 years have produced an explosion of new information on the biology of the approximately 1,000 living species of sharks, skates, rays, and chimaeras, which collectively make up the group Chondrichthyes. This course will cover advanced topics in the evolution, diversity, anatomy, functional morphology, physiology, sensory systems, behavior, reproduction, development, and conservation of cartilaginous fishes. Prereq: BIOL 411, BIOL 412; ZOOL 518 or ZOOL 625. Special Fee. (Summers only at Shoals Marine Lab.)

Term: Summer 2022 - Shoals Summer Session (05/23/2022 - 08/05/2022)
Grade Mode: Letter Grading
Class Size:   10  
CRN: 70847
Special Fees: $5,554.00
The course is designed to introduce students to a comparative study of the principal organ systems of vertebrates (i.e., fishes, sea turtles, marine birds, marine mammals) that are specifically adapted to the marine environment. Rather than focusing only on description of anatomical structure, the anatomy of structures are investigated with function, biological role, and evolutionary relationships. Laboratory exercises cover osteology, dissection, behavior and biomechanics. Special fee. Prereq: one year college biology/or permission. Permission required. (Summers only at Shoals Marine Lab.)
