Bahamas Faculty-Led Travel
BIOL 492 N800T - Marine Island Ecology
Dr. Alyssa Anderson
Travel Dates March 5-15, 2015
Credits: 4
 
This course focuses on learning about tropical marine and island biology on the island of San Salvador in the Bahamas. Learning will include a combination of traditional lecture, field, and laboratory explorations of marine and island biology. Prior to travel, weekly class sessions will be held to familiarize students with course goals and expectations, develop familiarity with concepts and environments unique to the marine and island setting, and explore relevant literature. Time spent on the island will be largely hands-on and experiential. Considering that there is so much to see and learn on the island, days will be long and intense.
 
The island of San Salvador offers the perfect environment to observe ecological processes, evolutionary histories, and biodiversity trends unique to islands. The island also provides a great variety of unique terrestrial and aquatic habitats to explore and study. Terrestrial habitats include scrub forests, sandy and rocky shorelines, and limestone caves, while aquatic habitats include coral reefs, sea grass beds, mangrove zones, intertidal areas, and inland saline ponds.
A typical weekday on San Salvador Island would involve breakfast at 7:30 a.m., a morning lecture and/or field activity (or work on research projects), lunch at noon at the field station (or a packout lunch if on a day-long field trip), an afternoon lecture and/or field activity, and dinner at 5 p.m.-ish. There will usually be organized evening activities, such as night snorkels, discussions, or lectures. Some evenings may be free for relaxing or for working on research projects or course materials.
