The focus of this class is on climate change in our oceans and how organisms respond, both given the traits they currently have as well as the potential for natural selection to modify these traits. Background in evolutionary biology and the range of heritable variation will be explored, along with a series of lab and field projects to let students gain skills needed for monitoring how organisms respond to their environment.
Here we will post lecture materials, PDFs you need for reading/discussion, and other resources. The "calendar" link above will give you some information about what is coming up, though that will be in almost constant flux for the next few weeks!
