CREDIT HOURS: 3
Impacts of anthropogenic inputs on the structure and function of coastal ecosystems. Through field trips and other classwork, students examine ecosystem health, e.g., in macroalgal communities on rocky shores, in seagrass beds on sedimentary shores, and learn basic experimental design, principles of environmental assessment and monitoring, and coastal habitat remediation.
NOTES: Offered in summer through SEASIDE. An auxiliary fee is charged to cover field expenses. For dates, times and special registration procedures, see seaside.science.dal.ca. Not offered every year.
