Marine Botany Course

“The Algae Class”

The main focus of this course is ALGAE!!!

We love algae in the Fong Lab!

The includes lectures, labs, and field trips to local beaches to learn about and identify the many species of marine algae. The whole class also goes on a camping field trip to collect and identify algae from the rocky intertidal habitat at the Kenneth S. Norris Rancho Marino Reserve near Cambria, California, part of the University of California Natural Reserve System.

Peggy teaches the upper division Marine Botany course every other Spring Quarter. If you’re interested in taking it, plan your schedule now.

This is always a very popular class!

Peggy received UCLA’s Distinguished Teaching Award for Mentoring Undergraduate in Research in 2008
