  • Ancient shrimp-like animals had 'modern' hearts and blood vessels

    An international team of researchers from the University of Arizona, China and the United Kingdom has discovered the earliest known cardiovascular system, and the first to clearly show a sophisticated system complete with heart and blood vessels, in fossilized remains of an extinct marine creature that lived over half a billion years ago. The finding sheds new light on the evolution of body organization in the animal kingdom and shows that even the earliest creatures had internal organizational systems that strongly resemble those found in their modern descendants.

  • Wed. Jan. 8, 2014 New study finds extreme longevity in white sharks.  
    Great white sharks—top predators throughout the world's ocean—grow much slower and live significantly longer than previously thought, according to a new study led by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).

Biology Life scientists study living organisms, their structure, evolutionary development, behavior and life processes.  Biologists are also interested in the relationship between animals, plants, microorganisms and their environments. 

The number and variety of plants and animals is vast, and life processes varied and complex; therefore, specialization is required early in upper division work. 

Come explore the display cases in our Science and Technology Building in Bremerton. HERE is the link to the Olympic College Poulsbo (OCP) campus also.
