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
