Marine Biology

Course Length

One Semester

Marine Biology is designed as a one ­semester science elective. The primary goal of Marine Biology is to become amazed at the unique plant and animal life God has created in the oceans. First Quarter will include an introduction to the physical geography, physical and chemical composition of marine water, and an overview of marine plant and animal life. Second Quarter will emphasize the ecosystems of the oceans, including marine communities of the intertidal zone, estuaries, coral reefs, the continental shelves, open water, and ocean depths, and human impact on the oceans. It includes laboratories to practice the scientific method, accuracy in measurement, collecting data, graphing and reporting. Marine Biology will provide opportunities to develop interest in careers (service) in Marine Biology and will provide the basic knowledge to help us demonstrate good stewardship of our planet’s resources in its oceans.
