BIOM 403 Comparative Physiology of Marine Organisms

This course is an introduction to the physiology of marine organisms utilizing a comparative approach. A wide range of marine organisms will be used to demonstrate the variety of mechanisms and strategies that allow them to physiologically adapt to their specific environments. This course is periodically offered at the Marine Science Consortium field station in Wallops Island, Va., only during the summer session. Since this course also is offered for graduate credit, a differentiation of requirements will be made.
