UG Coursework Unit
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
demonstrate advanced understanding of ocean carbonate cycle and critically evaluate possible effects of ocean acidification on marine invertebrates, fish, seaweeds and species interactions
discuss the theoretical basis for the impact of global warming on marine organisms and the three predicted universal responses of climate change on marine organism
critically evaluate how multiple stressors are eroding the diversity and function of marine ecosystems
conduct, analyse and interpret manipulative laboratory experiments in relation to marine biology
