(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.
