About the course
This course is about the biology of marine mammals and why their biological attributes have made this group of species important, controversial, and interesting. We hope that you will become interested in these animals and the issues surrounding them.
Parts of the course will be taught by some of the other marine mammal experts at Dalhousie. You will largely be evaluated on the basis of a realistic project which investigates a controversy involving marine mammals. The first set of lectures will give a background in marine mammalogy, the next set more in-depth information about some interesting species (including some research techniques), and then you will inform each other about marine mammal issues.
