Marine Biology via distance learning

 

This program of marine biology deals with the scientific study of marine life, including all the organisms in the sea ranging from the microscopic plankton to the big fishes. Marine biology classifies species based on the environment rather than on taxonomy. A large proportion of all life on Earth lives in the ocean, a complex three-dimensional world covering approximately 70% of the planet's surface, where many species and organisms are still unknown.

Life Science
This course explores the origin and nature of life, from simple single-cell to complex plants, animals, and human beings. It also covers the diversity and unity in the living world by studying the forms and organization of bacteria and other cells, the specialized structure of the human body, and how the organism is regenerated, maintained, and repaired.
Academic Supervisor: Mohammad Athar

Marine Life
This course reviews the physiology, reproductive biology, anatomy, taxonomy, and ecology of marine life. It also studies the marine organisms and their relationships to the marine environment with emphasis on human interaction with marine ecosystems.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Phycology
This course reviews the identification, physiology, ecology, and evolution of marine and freshwater algae.
Academic Supervisor: Arun Kumar Lahiry

Ichthyology
This course reviews the taxonomy, morphology, physiology, and ecology of fishes, considering the aspects of distribution, ecology, physiology, adaptation, and evolution of fishes. It also explores fish diversity; being the largest and most diverse group of vertebrates that inhabit virtually all aquatic environments.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Marine Zoology
This course explores the natural history, functional morphology, ecology, distribution, habitat, adaptation, trophic interrelationships, and evolution of marine animals. It shows comparative morphology and biology of marine invertebrates, as well as the morphological, physiological, behavioral, and ecological diversity of fishes of the world.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Marine Ecosystems
This course of marine ecosystems explores the habitats that complete the largest system from the shores to the dark sea floor. The marine ecosystem includes: marshes, tidal zones, estuaries, the mangrove forest, lagoons, sea grass beds, the sea floor, and the coral reefs. Just like every other ecosystem in the world, the aquatic ecosystems rely on each other for maintaining a balanced marine ecosystem.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Marine Biology
This course deals with the biological aspects of marine communities from coastal estuaries to deep ocean trenches. It integrates marine biology with aspects of physical, geological, and chemical oceanography in relationship to the marine ecosystems and the organisms that inhabit them.
