2018 Marine Biology Field Adventure including Pelagic Birding

purple sea urchin    marine biology

basket sea star    kelp   birders

Instructor: Larry Basch, Ph.D. and TBA
Dates: Friday - Sunday, August 10-12, 2018
Location: Meet at Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, Charleston
Tuition: $250 for entire course (including offshore birding trip, does not include lodging)
$125 – Pelagic trip only
 
Meet benthic (sea floor) and planktonic marine organisms, algae, pelagic and shorebirds and marine mammals offshore in the Coos Bay and Cape Arago region, an area valued for extremely high diversity. Learn to use several scientific tools to examine this marine biodiversity up close in the field and lab. You’ll have the opportunity to press seaweed to prepare herbarium specimens, look at collected intertidal zone and plankton specimens via a high-powered microscope connected to video, and use microscopes yourself.

We’ll survey local species and habitats, plus ecological and oceanographic processes that influence organism form, function, interaction and distribution. We’ll also discuss how local communities, including tribes, and wildlife utilize these marine resources. Students will 
use binoculars and microscopes to make observations and will need to be mobile on a moving vessel at sea and on wet, seaweed-covered rocks on shore.

Our setting is the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology across from the Charleston harbor and we’ll also visit the nearby Charleston Marine Life Center to learn more about the natural history of the southern Oregon coast.
