FEATURED RESOURCE: HONORS MARINE BIOLOGY COURSE MATERIALS

Mark Friedman has made his entire Marine Biology course available for download. This material is aligned with the Castro/Huber Marine Biology Textbook. Each chapter includes text, photo, presentation and video materials. Tests and exam questions are provided. Projects, labs and links to related materials elsewhere on the internet are available for some chapters. The course has been broken down into smaller pieces to help our friends in other countries with slow internet.

The following seven Ocean Principles videos were created by students with marine science professionals from NOAA, Sea Grant, COSEE, National Marine Educators and other organizations.
