COURSE: ENV 3160J / ENV 3160S
CREDITS: 10 online course hours, 30 laboratory work hours, 50 field and class lecture hours

This course aims to address the rapidly declining state of marine biodiversity by applying science to conservation. Conservation Marine Biology is a field in science that integrates several disciplines – including geology, oceanography, marine biology, ecology, ichthyology and other – to propose sustainable management strategies based on science.

Marine ecosystems of the eastern tropical Pacific provide a baseline source for species of high commercial interest to satisfy humans’ demand for food worldwide. However, numerous marine species are threatened by unsustainable activities, such as overfishing and habitat destruction. Students will develop a critical understanding of Conservation Marine Biology, addressing biological and ecological questions such as what is tropical marine biodiversity? What do we need to do to conserve marine biodiversity? What are the causes that threaten marine biodiversity? What are the solutions for observed conflicts?

Students will be exposed to several case studies, lectures and practical activities by visiting field stations and natural laboratories along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

COURSE: ENV 3190J
CREDITS: 6 US credits / 80 contact hours

Prerequisite: General Biology.

This course is aimed to highlight the importance of tropical marine biology to study the biology and the interaction of marine species that we will discovery in the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Marine ecosystems of the eastern tropical Pacific provide a baseline source for species of high commercial interest in satisfying humans demand for food worldwide. However, numerous marine species are threatened by unsustainable human activities, such as overfishing and habitat destruction. We will develop a critical understanding of concepts and application in Marine Biology, where the students will also be introduced to a wide range of practical activities by visiting field stations and natural laboratories in Costa Rica.

COURSE: SMBOAP200
CREDITS: 3 US credits / 45 contact hours
OFFERED: July Sessions: 3, B

This course provides a general introduction to the study of human anatomy and physiology. The course is designed for non-biology majors who want to learn the basics of anatomy. General properties of living organisms are considered while human structures and functions are emphasized. The class will study the creation of the human body, from cells to tissues, organs to organ systems, and finally the organism, along with the chemical and physical principles behind its operation, and the principal systems and their physiological processes will be discussed. In addition, students are given a historical overview of anatomical studies from the work of Galen in antiquity to the anatomical investigations of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Vesalius during the Renaissance. New and noninvasive technologies, such as MRI, that uncover parts of the human anatomy never seen before, will be introduced. Field trips include the La Specola Zoological Museum for its collection of 18th-century anatomical wax models.
