While on the marine ecology course, we will see and do many interesting things! Here are some of the organisms that you will encounter, some on an everyday basis. I want you to become very familiar with these organisms--when the course is done, you will have a working knowledge of the names and ecology of these creatures. There will be four quizzes on the taxonomies of: (1) Fish; (2) Algae; (3) Corals; and (4) Invertebrates. So,.....to get a head start......here are some web pages put together by your Teaching Assistants. We'll let you know later which creatures to focus on later.
