• New set of Interviews:  On Tuesday February 11 from 10 to noon at COH, at the long Marine Lab.  See you there!
  • We will have an information session on Tuesday, Jan 14,  evening at 6:30 pm in the COH classroom at the long marine lab
  • Interviews will be held on Thursday, January 16, at 10 am, in the COH library at the long marine lab.
interviews only last 3 minutes but there are lots of students, so if you arrive anytime between 10 and 12, it is okay.
  • BioE 159/159L Marine Ecology Field Quarter is a course that combines 4 modules including a field component into a quarter-long lecture-field course that is split between UCSC campus and a field station. The course is offered every other year. Students are not allowed to concurrently enroll in any other courses. Biology 159 “Marine Biology Field Quarter integrates 4 courses (159A, 159B, 159C and 159D) into a quarter-long lecture-field course that is split between UCSC campus and a field station. Students are required to take all the courses, totaling 19 credits, in what essentially would be an immersion study. The lecture and lab courses that comprise Biology 159 are:
  1. Fish Biology (5 credits)
  2. Temperate and Sub-Tropical Marine Ecology (5 credits)
  3. Field Ecology (5 credits)
  4. Field Ecology Lab (4 credits)
  • The intent of this course (the combined sequence of 5 courses) is to provide a quarter of ecological and biological immersion for very motivated students. The structure of the course (19 units – no other classes) was designed to provide a quarter’s worth of credit (so that students did not get behind), and limit distraction from other courses. Why field classes? – The involvement in field research in the marine environment is amenable to this sort of course. The relative isolation of field sites will cause the students to concentrate more completely on their studies. In addition, both Bernardi and Raimondi have experience working subtidally in the field, – so the logistic constraints and benefits of working there are known.
