Marine Ecology Journal Club

A Marine Ecology Journal Club barbecue at Mansfield Hollow State Park.

The Marine Ecology Journal Club at Eastern Connecticut State University is a no-credit journal review club founded by my students and I in 2009. Every semester, exceptional Ecology students have been invited to join the club. Each week we read, discuss, and criticize a student-selected piece of primary literature while enjoying a delicious snack. The goal is to become familiar with primary literature, develop critical thinking skills, and hone the ability to generate hypotheses. We celebrate semester’s end with a barbecue.
