    Morgan Kelly, John Wares


    Syllabus


    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.


    Evaluation


    1. Attendance and Participation (daily) – 10%
      1. show up, speak up
      2. ask questions
      3. interact well
    2. Journal/Lab Notebook (daily) – 10%

      3. Crazy Ideas Club
    3. Paper Discussions (6+) – 10%
      1. not just summary of paper
      2. identify questions
      3. engage rest of class
    4. Project Reports (4) – 15% each
      1. 4-5 pages (single-spaced) with citations (use journal like Molecular Ecology as guide)
      2. figures, data summary
      3. methods, results, why the work was done, what you learned
      4. what should be done next
    5. Debates (2) – 10%
      1. topics TBA
      2. prepare information to be available for discussion, debate
      3. summarize your thoughts on end of debate in Notebook (2, above)


    Analyses and writing are important, and time will be allotted to make sure you have time to think, spend time in library/computer, have drafts assessed by peers. Dr. Kelly and Dr. Wares will be available for some one-on-one mentoring as needed. Your schedule will need to be somewhat flexible but expect class interactions or effort between 9-5 most week days with breaks for lunch. More time will be needed in evenings for your writing and preparations.


    Weekends and July 4 are days “off” from class; note that July 4 is maybe the best low tide so there may be opportunity to tag along with the Marine Invertebrates class for exploring that day!
