BIO 414: Biology Marine Mammals
Prerequisite: BIO 210 or 214 or 215 and BIO 234 or 235
General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology
Biology of marine mammals, including cetaceans (whales and dolphins), pinnipeds (seals, sea lions, and walruses), sirenians (dugongs and manatees), and sea otters. Fossil, anatomical, physiological, life history, behavioral, and ecological evidence is marshaled to explore marine mammal adaptations for reproduction, feeding, locomotion, diving, thermoregulation, communication, and sensing their environment.
