Marine Protected Areas (3 weeks; August 11 - 29)
Instructor: Dr. Beth Scott (University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK)

As human use of the marine world is only set to increase are Marine Protected Areas (MPA) what we need for our oceans to become sustainable in terms of the ecological, economic and energy producing capacity of marine environments? This course aims to enable students to appreciate the level of understanding of physical & biological oceanography, biodiversity, trophic interactions and individual species level life history issues that are required to implement spatially explicit, sustainable marine conservation.
