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 3044
CREDITS: 15 credit points / 60 contact hours

Students will learn about the interactions between earth and land and how these interactions or processes affect our life and the stability of the planet. Emphasis will be given to the study of the most relevant tropical ecosystems such as: tropical rain forests, cloud forests, coral reefs and mangroves. Field trips to selected environments will provide on-site examples of some of the issues learned through classwork and readings. All field trips are mandatory.

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: EPS SCI 15
CREDITS: 5 US credits

General introduction to geological, physical, chemical, and biological processes and history of Earth’s global ocean system.
