Dear Colleague,

The Bermuda Biological Station for Research is pleased to announce its
2002 Summer Course offerings.  These courses are for advanced
undergraduates and beginning graduate students.  The courses are all field
intensive and participation is limited to maximize interaction with the
instructors. Please review the course offerings and forward the
information to any interested students or colleagues.

Significant scholarship awards are available to qualified applicants.

The deadline for application is March 15, 2002.  Please alert your
students to these courses by directing them to our website
( for
application details or by forwarding this email to them.

Chemosensory Neurobiology in the Marine Environment  -  June 16 - July 5
Marine Ecotoxicology - June 16 - July 5
Coral Reef Ecology  -  July 28 - August 18


Chemosensory Neurobiology in the Marine Environment.
Dr. Hank  Trapido-Rosenthal, BBSR
Dr. Charles Derby, Georgia State University.
In this course, students will study chemosensory neurobiology in the marine
environment at the physiological, biochemical and molecular levels.
Receptor cell electrophysiology, immunocytochemistry, BrdU labeling of cell
proliferation, biochemistry of receptor and perireceptor phenomena, and
molecular biology techniques will be applied to the study of novel research
questions relating to chemical sensing. This course is designed to benefit
graduate students and advanced undergraduates who have interests in
organismal, systems, cellular or molecular biology.

Marine Ecotoxicology. Dr. Jack Manock, University of North Carolina; Dr.
Peter Wells, Environment Canada; Dr. Richard Owen, BBSR; Dr. Michael
Depledge, University of Plymouth
The three-week course focuses on current issues in marine ecotoxicology,
assessing the impacts of anthropogenic substances using a wide range of
chemical and bioassay analyses.  Students perform chemical analyses and
marine microscale bioassays on samples they collect from three near-shore
environments.  Results are reported and discussed in the overall context of
performing ecological risk management decisions and assessing the
biological effects resulting from organisms exposed to anthropogenic

Coral Reef Ecology.  Dr. Alexandra Amat; Dr. Jo Pitt, BBSR
An integrated introduction and exposure to active areas of research
covering physiology, photosynthesis, population biology, competition,
ecosystems and human impacts.  Field measurements and subsequent lab
analyses provide practical training in common methods of reef studies such
as photosynthesis, calcification, species surveys, fish behavior, larval
recruitment and algal growth.  The course requires SCUBA certification.

Thank you for your attention
