MARINE MAMMALS. (Biology 126L=D7/Environment 226L*.) An intensive=
of ecology, social organization, behavior, communication, anatomy, and
management/conservation issues.  Laboratory and field exercises consider
social organization, communication, data analysis, and life history
parameters.  Prerequisite:  college level courses in introductory biology.
Team taught; instructors include:  Drs. Andrew Read (Duke University),
Randall Wells (UC Santa Cruz), Laela Sayigh and Ann Pabst (UNC, Wilmington),
Aleta Hohn (NMFS, Beaufort Lab) Daniel Rubenstein (Princeton University),
and John Reynolds (Eckerd College--course coordinator). =20
The biology and management of marine mammals attract considerable interest
worldwide and raise ecological, evolutionary, economic, and ethical
questions.  This course uses a comparative approach (involving contrasts
with a local wild horse population) to illustrate key concepts in biology
and conservation biology and provide a rigorous, systematic overview of
marine mammals, especially those species found in the southeastern United
States.  For such species, we emphasize the following topics:  behavior,
ecology, life history, conservation, current research techniques, and key
management issues.  Evaluation is based on weekly examinations and research
projects.  =09
Course space is limited and admission will be on a first-come, first-served
basis.  Room and board will be available for course participants at the
Marine Laboratory.  The course is offered during Summer Term III (July 22 -
August 23). =20
