EEMB3470/3471 Coastal Ecology and Sustainability + Lab

This course allows student to explore the ecology and sustainability of coastal marine systems, with a particular focus on urban harbors. Students will learn about the diversity and complexity of coastal habitats and will examine how coastal ecosystem function, and the benefit of these functions as ecosystem services. In the end students will develop an understanding of the foundational principals of coastal ecology, understand the role of biodiversity in sustaining coastal systems and the unique challenge of maintaining diversity of coastal systems in urbanized harbors, and build capacity to connect basic science to applied practice in sustainability.
