Honors Marine Biology Course Materials

by Mark Friedman

Mark Friedman has made his entire Marine Biology course available for download. 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. As this is a visual teaching aid, we lean towards large, clearly detailed images where possible. Download it once, teach it a hundred times.

Please be patient while we get all this uploaded. Links will enable when that chapter is posted.
