    The general biology of fishes, with emphasis on trends in their evolution, integrative and sensory biology, physiology, feeding ecology, reproduction, growth and population dynamics as they relate to fisheries.
    FAS 4270 Marine Ecological Processes
    Credits: 3. Prereq: BSC 2010 and BSC 2011 or equivalent.
    The ecology of marine organisms and habitats with focus on how general ecological principles, and those unique to the marine environment, drive patterns and processes.
