Creatures to Become Familiar With

While on the marine ecology course, we will see and do many interesting things! Here are some of the organisms that you will encounter, some on an everyday basis. I want you to become very familiar with these organisms--when the course is done, you will have a working knowledge of the names and ecology of these creatures. There will be four quizzes on the taxonomies of: (1) Fish; (2) Algae; (3) Corals; and (4) Invertebrates. So,.....to get a head start......here are some web pages put together by your Teaching Assistants. We'll let you know later which creatures to focus on later.

Parrot Fish
Wrasse
Sharks and Rays
Invertebrates
Algae
Birds
