Explore the fascinating world of MARINE MAMMALS with us
Summer Program 1995
at Duke University School of the Environment, Marine Laboratory
 
MARINE MAMMALS. (Environment 226L.) Ecology, social organization, behavior,
acoustic communication, anatomy/necropsy and management issues.  Focused on
marine mammals in the southeastern United States (for example, bottlenose
dolphin, right whale, West Indian manatee).  Laboratory exercises will
consider social organization and acoustic communication in the local
bottlenose dolphin population. Prerequisite: introductory biology. One
course or 4 semester hours. Instructors: A. Pabst, J. Reynolds, K.
Rittmaster, D. Rubenstein, L. Sayigh, V. Thayer, and R. Wells.
        The biology and management of marine mammals throughout the world attrac
t
considerable interest and raise ecological, evolutionary, economic, and
ethical questions.  This course provides a systematic overview of marine
mammals in general, but focuses on selected marine mammals found in the
southeastern United States.  For such species, we emphasize the following
topics: behavior and ecology, current research techniques, and key
management issues.  The final week of the course involves small-group field
research projects.  Evaluation is based on examinations and research project
reports.
        Course space is limited and admission will be on a first-come, first-ser
ved
basis.  Room and board will be available for course participants at the
Marine Laboratory.
        The course is offered during Summer Term III (July 24 - August 25).
 
APPLICATION:  Required credentials include the completed summer course
application (found at the back of the Marine Laboratory 1995 publication)
and an academic transcript.
