BIOL 139. Global Ocean Change Biology
This seminar will examine the impact of anthropogenic activities on marine organisms across different level of biological organization. Keeping pace with this rapidly evolving field, we will discuss primary literature across disciplines, including epigenetic and genetic responses, organismal performances, and ecosystem functions and services. Strong emphases are place on study design and statistical analysis. Manipulative and numerical experiments will involve marine invertebrate models.
