Sapelo Island, Georgia reports from Zoology 750

Below are proposals and reports from Zoology 750, the legendary Sapelo Island field course. The course has been a rite of passage for CFL grad students for 40 years. Though listed as Problems in Oceanography in the course catalog, this is our graduate field ecology course. It involves one weekly meeting and then a ten-day field trip to Sapelo Island, GA. The course will introduce you to coastal marine ecosystems of SEastern North America, but the real aim is to give you an independent research experience on a low-stakes project where you have lots of support and engagement from faculty and fellow students. These proposals and reports are also shelved by year in the CFL library.

The list below will continue to be populated throughout the summer, 2015. The reports have been assigned keywords. Use the “find” feature (Ctrl-F) to locate reports with keywords in the following categories:
