course is limited to 16 students.
OBJECTIVES: A) to provide students with the physiological and biochemical
bases of photosynthesis as well as the mechanisms that regulate
photosynthesis in the aquatic environment with particular emphasis on
coral reefs and coral reef dwelling organisms and B) to provide technical
