Extractions: ISBN: While keeping in mind the range of potential users of this text, we have written it primarily for lower-division, non-science majors at colleges and universities. These students may enroll in marine biology not only out of personal interest in the subject, but also to fulfill a general science requirement. Many will take no other college science course. We have made a special effort to include the solid basic science content needed in a general education course, including fundamental principles of biology, the physical sciences, and the scientific method. Our general aim was to integrate this basic science content with a stimulating, up-to-date overview of marine biology. We hope this approach demonstrates the relevance of the physical sciences to biology and makes the study of all sciences less intimidating. At the same time, we recognize that general science content will not be needed in all marine biology courses, either because the course is not intended to satisfy general education requirements or because students already have some scientific background. To balance the needs of instructors teaching courses with and without prerequisites in basic biology or other sciences, we have designed the book to provide as much flexibility as possible in the amount of basic science coverage, the order in which topics are presented, and in overall emphasis and approach. We have tried to meet the needs and expectations of a wide variety of students, from the humanities major who likes to go fishing to the biology major considering a career in marine science. We also hope that a variety of readers other than university students find the book useful and enjoyable.

Extractions: (Regular and Co-op) An Honours degree in Marine Biology requires 15 credits beyond the first year, at least nine of which must be in Biology and two in a minor subject - usually oceanography. Honours students are also expected to undertake a research project and thesis in a marine field with a member of our department or a research scientist or professor at one of our affiliated marine institutes or universities. Students can enter the programme after their first year and must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or above in their major and minor subjects above first year. The following is a list of mandatory classes required of all students in the Honours programme (Co-op and Regular). Full year classes are shown as .06; half year classes as .03 after the class number.

Extractions: University of Cape Town MARINE BIOLOGY The University of Cape Town has a long and proud tradition as a centre for marine research and for the training of marine scienctists. Over 100 marine scientists work in the Departments of Botany , Chemistry, Engineering, Environmental and Geographical Science , Geological Sciences, Oceanography , Surveying and Zoology, many of them full-time researchers sponsored by outside funding organisations. Oceanography is the general term applied to the scientific study of the sea. Marine Biology, Marine Geoscience, Physical Oceanography, Marine Chemistry, Coastal Engineering and Sea Surveying are all thus specialisations within the general field of Oceanography. All marine related activities at UCT are co-ordinated within the School of Marine Science The University of Cape Town does not offer a major degree specialising in Marine Biology (in fact no such degree is available in South Africa). It is however possible to structure an undergraduate curriculum that emphasises marine studies in the senior years of a BSc whilst majoring in Zoology, Botany or Ocean and Atmospheric Science. A senior half-course in Marine Ecology is also offered at third or fourth year (

Extractions: Return to the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology Contents page The School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) was established in 1988. It combines and integrates the Departments of Geology and Geophysics, Meteorology, Ocean and Resources Engineering, and Oceanography, as well as the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, and the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute. The Sea Grant and Space Grant College Programs, the Hawaii Undersea Research Laboratory, and the Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research, all jointly supported by state and federal funds, are also part of SOEST. In 1997 the International Pacific Research Center was established in SOEST under the U.S.- Japan Common Agenda. The center is jointly supported by the state, Japanese, and federal funds. Mission The mission of SOEST is to make the University of Hawaii a leading center in ocean and earth science and technology. Scientists of SOEST intend to understand the subtle and complex interrelations of the seas, the atmosphere, and the Earth in order to learn how to preserve the quality of our lives and to bring to Hawaii an enrichment of intellect and culture along with technological advances well suited to the needs of these islands. To that end, the objectives of SOEST are as follows: Enhance educational opportunities in ocean and earth science and technology for the people of Hawaii, the nation, and the Pacific Basin;

The Campus of the University's College of Marine Studies, located at the mouth of the Delaware Bay, is the site for many of its marine related courses and research programs. Beach, rocky intertidal and tide-marsh habitats exist within a few miles of the Marine Studies laboratories. A sophisticated running sea water system supports laboratory studies associated with research and courses. Students have access to research vessels ranging from small boats used along the bay shore to the Cape Henlopen, a 120 ft. offshore oceanographic vessel. Scientific inquiry in marine biology is conducted by a variety of specialists with advanced training in biology (zoology, botany, and microbiology), oceanography, fisheries, mariculture, medicine, pharmacology, etc. Since virtually all career opportunities in marine biology require a graduate degree, the faculty of the University of Delaware strongly urge interested undergraduates to do the following: Take electives related to your interest in marine biology. Since the undergraduate B.A. degree in Biological Sciences requires you to take some elective courses in biology, you may wish to enroll in such marine-oriented courses as BISC 630 Ichthyology, BISC 660 Environmental Physiology; or one of the 6 Marine Studies courses accepted for biology major credit.
