Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2021-22

La asignatura de Biología Marina proporciona al alumno una amplia visión del conjunto de estrategias empleadas por los organismos marinos en su supervivencia, con especial incidencia en los aspectos fisiológicos. Estos conocimientos se complementan con los de asignaturas como botánica marina, zoología, zoología marina y ecología marina, además de servir de base en las asignaturas orientadas a la gestión y explotación de los recursos marinos.
