Marine Algae (Phytoplankton and Seaweeds) at University of Washington's
Friday Harbor Laboratories

Botany 545b (9 credits) Summer 2000 ("B" term: July 17-August 19, 2000)

Summary: This course explores the diversity of marine algae with an
emphasis on the practical skills required to identify the organisms.
Approximately equal emphasis will be placed on phytoplankton (diatoms,
dinoflagellates, other phytoflagellates) and on seaweeds (benthic
macroalgae).  The easy access to the rich flora of Puget Sound and the
excellent research and microscopy facilities of Friday Harbor Laboratories
will allow an in-depth introduction to techniques and literature used for
seaweed and phytoplankton identification.  Lecture topics will include:
evolutionary survey of major groups of algae, algal survival adaptations
(reproduction, life histories, functional morphology, interactions with
competitors and predators), and the ecological role of algae in coastal
and oceanic ecosystems. Extensive intertidal and shipboard field trips and
hands-on lab work will introduce participants to the techniques essential
for collection, identification, and cultivation of algae from their
diverse natural habitats.

This course is appropriate for marine biologists, phycologists, botanists
and oceanographers with interests in marine biodiversity, conservation
biology, intertidal ecology and phytoplankton ecology.  Graduate students
and advanced undergraduates students (juniors, seniors) are encouraged to
apply.  This course will be offered at the University of Washington's
Friday Harbor Laboratories on San Juan Island, Washington.  Faculty: Craig
D. Sandgren, Univ. of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Michael W.
Hawkes, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia.
