MSCI 475 - Coastal Wetlands Ecology


4 credit hours
This course will focus on coastal and near shore wetland areas, with an emphasis on the biogeochemical processes that occur within, as well as issues that threaten and protect these important resources. Wetlands not only provide critical habitat for many aquatic and semi-aquatic species, they are also important for primary productivity, transformation of nutrients, pollutant removal, as well as provide protection from storm surges and floodwaters. Insight into wetland ecology requires understanding of the unique interactions between biology, chemistry, and hydrology. Prerequisite(s): BIO 105  (or 107 ), 106 , and 205 .
