Expanded Course Description
Much marine life is easily observed from shore – if one pays attention. Using field trips early in the course, and then facilitated use of field guides and discussion, the course will introduce the general foundations of marine biology, and help students discover the natural world, and their own ability to absorb it and learn about it, even if they are not scientists. Students will work in groups to develop case studies on topics such as oil spills and oil spill response, marine reserves, management of fisheries, and oceans and human health.

As a Science group satisfying course, BI 150 provides an introduction to the foundations of marine biology and introduces scientific reasoning and methodology. In particular, it introduces the natural history of the Oregon coastal environment and helps students differentiate between information obtained using the scientific method and other kinds of information that may also be relevant to solving environmental problems.
