Introduce students to the basic principles of marine biology, spanning from organisms to ecosystems.
Students will learn about the ways that humans use, impact, and attempt to protect marine resources.
Enhance students’ interest in studying marine biology.
Acquire upper-division undergraduate students with fundamental knowledge of fisheries science.
Provide upper-division undergraduate students with mathematical and statistical skills that will be used in their future fisheries research.
- Equip graduate students with basic statistical knowledge for biological/ecological applications.
- Help student understand the benefits of using numerous R add-on packages to process data and to present results.
- Enhance biological/ecological students’ interest in studying statistics.
- Expose students to stock assessment models and tools that are commonly used by quantitative fisheries biologists.
- Train students in interpreting models and statistical results with regard to analysis of fish dependent/independent data.
- Prepare students with the ability to conduct scientific research in fishery population dynamics/stock assessment and related fields.

OCB 2003L (supervise)
Lab course for OCB 2003
Offered with OCB 2003
Provides a hands-on experience and introduce students to common marine organisms and their habitats and to the use of experimental methods to study marine biological problems.
Emphasis is placed on the physical environment, the different kinds of marine organisms -- from bacteria to plants and animals -- and how to classify them.
Illustrate the use of the scientific method as a powerful tool to answer questions about marine organisms.
BSC 5936 (coordinate)
Offered every year
A one-week seminar series that provides a dynamic short course for faculty and students in an area of current interest.
The speakers are voted from a pool of distinguished scholars, and the topics are selected from a list of areas by the Biological Sciences faculty.
All Biological Sciences graduate students are eligible to register.
