Course Outline:

The course aims to develop and promote skills in the marine sciences in South Africa, making students familiar with global marine ecosystem structure and functioning, but with an emphasis on South African systems. Lectures, tutorials and practicals will be aimed at developing interpretative and integrative skills built during previous courses (e.g. SEA2004F; BIO2014F; BIO1004S; BIO1000F), which cover large amounts of more basic information. A further important aim will be to develop numerical and written skills, as well as introducing students to modern research techniques and approaches.
