BI 3263 Special Topics in Biology: Tropical Marine Ecology

Students will study the marine biology and ecology of Andros Island, the Bahamas and its surrounding marine areas. Andros Island is a humid tropical island in the Caribbean and as such its ecology is very different to that of Maine. Students will visit Andros Island for one week during the course examining coral reefs, mangrove forests, and National Parks to study the different habitats within the island. This course counts as a field course.
