Study of relationships between organisms and physical, chemical, and biological factors of the marine environment. Consideration of the open ocean and coastal ecosystems and human influences on them.
1. To learn about the marine environment (open ocean and coastal areas) as a medium in which to live (survive, grow, reproduce, etc.). 2. To survey the types of organisms inhabiting the ocean from the standpoints of morphology (structure), physiology (function), and behavior, noting those features that are of special adaptive significance. 3. To understand how marine organisms interact with each other (e.g., predation, competition) and with abiotic features (e.g., salt content, light) of the ocean; i.e., to apply principles of ecology to the marine environment. 4. To become aware of ways in which the human species uses and abuses the ocean and its living resources, in order to be informed on oceanrelated issues and to provide a basis for influencing management decisions.
