BIO 10N: Using Physics to Explain Biology: Mechanistic Approaches to Plankton Ecology

People often think of physics and biology as entirely separate scientific pursuits, but in fact the two can be productively combined. All plants and animals live in a physical environment, and the laws of physics that govern that environment often determine how organisms function and interact. In this seminar, we will explore the confluence of physics and biology through an in-depth look at how phytoplankton and zooplankton -- the small algae and animals that form the base of the oceans' food web -- are affected by the physical properties of their watery world. You will be amazed by our ability to explain the ecology of these organisms, and how important that ecology is to life on earth.
