Exploring Creation with Marine Biology

This course focuses on marine wildlife and habitats, providing a survey of members of each biological kingdom that live in underwater environments. Students will learn about the microscopic organisms that make life in the ocean possible, and will also examine the anatomy of macroscopic marine creatures such as clams, starfish, and sharks. The student will discover how these creatures and their physical surroundings form marine ecosystems such as intertidal zones, estuaries, coral reefs, continental shelf communities, epipelagic communities, and deep-ocean communities. Students must complete one year of biology prior to taking this course.
