Shellfish Aquaculture. Drs. Samia Sarkis, BBSR and Cyr Couturier, Memorial
University of Newfoundland.
This practical two-week course aims to provide hands on experience in
various aspects of shellfish aquaculture, and familiarize the students with
specific issues concerning tropical and temperate aquaculture.

Tropical Marine Invertebrates. Dr. Kathryn A. Coates, BBSR and University
of Toronto.
Invertebrate diversity of Bermuda's reefs, seagrass & mangrove habitats is
examined systematically and in relation to biological associations,
behaviors, body  forms, and habitats.

Molecular Ecology and Physiology of Marine Symbioses. Drs. Hank
Trapido-Rosenthal, BBSR and Zoe Billinghurst, University of Plymouth.
The techniques of molecular biology will be applied to previously
intractable physiological, ecological, and evolutionary questions
concerning the ecology and physiology of the symbiotic  assemblages found
in Bermuda's marine environment.

Marine Ecotoxicology. Drs. Jack Manock, University of North Carolina, Peter
Wells, Environment Canada, Richard Owen, BBSR, Michael  Depledge,
University of Plymouth, James Butler, Harvard University.
The impacts of anthropogenic substances will be assessed using a wide range
of chemical and bioassay analyses and placed in the context of ecological
risk management

Human Health and the Ocean. Drs. Eric Dewailly, MD, Laval University and
WHO/PAHO Collaborating Center on Environmental and Occupational Health,
Québec, and Clare Morrall, St. George's University, Grenada.
The ocean is a major source of food, yet food chain contaminants represents
a public health risk, ocean biodiversity is the source of new medical
treatments, yet waterborne disease and marine toxin poisoning is increasing
as global climate affects the emergence of infectious diseases.

Pathology of Coastal Organisms. Drs. Garriet Smith, University of South
Carolina, and Ernesto Weil, University of Puerto Rico.
The known and suspected diseases of coastal invertebrates, especially coral
reef invertebrates are identified and the pathogenesis, microbiology and
ecology of the pathogens studied.  The ecological significance of stress
and disease occurrence in the context of coral reef biology and  marine

Biology of Fishes.  Dr. Bruce B. Collette, U.S. National Marine Fisheries
Form and locomotion; fins; osteology; skin and scales; jaws and mouth;
myology; respiration; cardio-vascular system; digestion; excretion and
osmoregulation; gas bladder; color; nervous system; sense organs;
reproduction; early life history; zoogeography; and systematics.

Coral Reef Ecology.  Drs. Zvy Dubinsky, Bar-Ilan University; and JoAnna
Pitt, BBSR.
An integrated introduction and exposure to active areas of research
covering physiology, photosynthesis, population biology, competition,
ecosystems and human impacts.  Laboratory and field techniques of reef
