2019 Marine Biology Field Adventure including Pelagic Birding

Pelagic by KP    MB Students by LA   Jellyfish in lab
Photos by K.M. Pyle and Lisa Appel

Instructor: Larry Basch, Ph.D.
Dates: Friday-Sunday, August 2-4, 2019
Location: Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, Charleston
Tuition: $250 – does not include OIMB lodging; $125 – Pelagic birding trip only


Meet benthic (sea floor) and planktonic marine organisms, algae, pelagic and shorebirds and marine mammals offshore in the Coos Bay and Cape Arago region, an area valued for extremely high diversity. Learn to use several scientific tools to examine this marine biodiversity up close in the field and lab. You’ll have the opportunity to prepare seaweed herbarium specimens, look at collected intertidal zone and plankton specimens via a high-powered microscope connected to video, and use microscopes yourself. We’ll survey local species and habitats, plus ecological and oceanographic processes that influence organism form, function, interaction and distribution. We’ll also discuss how local communities, including tribes, and wildlife utilize these marine resources. Students will use binoculars and microscopes to make observations and will need to be mobile on a moving vessel at sea and on wet, seaweed covered rocks on shore. Our setting is the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology across from the Charleston harbor and we’ll also visit the nearby Charleston Marine Life Center to learn more about the southern Oregon coast’s natural history.
