The Sea as Field Laboratory

Abe V Rotor
Phycology students from the University of Santo Tomas
test the water at low tide in Paraoir, Bacnotan, La Union.

Seaweeds form debris on the shoreline - a biological
indicator of biodiversity and composition.

Pollution from cement dusts emitted by a nearby cement factory.

A mat of Chaetomorpha, a green alga growing on
shallow coral reef.

Gathering and identifying specimens in situ -
a first hand experience.

Snorkling, a requirement in marine phycology.

"Don't disturb, just observe nature."
