Advanced, MNS 193. Marine Environmental Microbiology.
Technological breakthroughs over the past decades have changed our ability to study microbial communities and microbially-driven processes in the environment. In this seminar class, we will discuss based on state-of-the-art publications and written assignments how recent conceptual, analytical, and experimental advances in the field of environmental microbiology are transforming our understanding of how marine ecosystems operate.

Advanced, MNS 193. Marine Populations and Fisheries.
Many marine scientists are charged with the task of applying the principles of population biology toward the management of exploited populations of marine organisms in an effort to balance the needs for harvest (commercial or recreational) against sustainability. In this course, students will read and discuss important publications dealing with the principles of marine population biology, including topics such as age and growth, mortality, recruitment stock identification, connectivity, and the contributions of early life stages to population biology.
