I am interested in doing a research on coral reproduction. I have funds (US
$ 65000) to work on coastal resources and I am interested in carrying out a
research on reproduction of selected species of corals available in Sri
Lanka and to compare the findings with the related coral species in any
where else. I have to register for a split Ph.D. Program. Therefore I could
spend 4-6 months per year in that particular university. I would be pleased
if some of you could kindly let me know whether this is possible and if so,
what will be the costs incurred to register for a split Ph.D. Presently I am
carrying out research in the Southern coastal belt of Sri Lanka. Professor
P.R.T.Cumaranathunge is the local coordinator for the above grant. I have to
do a major part of research in Sri Lanka because the Sida /SAREC has given
to build capacity in marine research at University of Ruhuna. I would
appreciate if some of you could respond to this mail at your earliest
Thank you very much.
