Distance Learning: Register for our Spring Course Today!

Registration is NOW open for courses in Aquatic Animal Health at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. These courses are available to UF students and non-UF students all around the world!

Take our Aquatic Systems and Environmental Health course!

Aquatic Systems and Environmental Health is an online course that provides an overview of aquatic resources including oceans, estuaries, rivers, lakes, streams and ponds, with focus on respective biotic communities and environmental health. We will address the physical and chemical nature of water, and the hydrologic cycle in order to understand water and land usage, and effects of various types of contamination in different ecosystems.

The course will provide a taxonomic and ecological summary of aquatic biota, from algae and invertebrates to vertebrates and pathogens. A case study approach will be used to provide resources pertaining to contaminant input, other anthropogenic activities, harmful algae, and changes in the environment such as climate change. Biotic indices of environmental change, including application of bioindicators, will be discussed and evaluated relative to both environmental and human health.
