Comparative Histopathology," at Nova Southeastern University's (NSU) 
Oceanographic Center, Dania Beach, Florida, will start Monday, May 9, 
and run until July 29, 2016.

Note that only ONE week requires attendance at ONE of these options:

(1) Credit or audit students meet at NSUOC July 11-15 (final exam for

This course presents the microscopic anatomy of scleractinian corals and 
gorgonians (Phylum Cnidaria, Class Anthozoa). It will help you

their ecology, physiology, reproduction, biochemistry, systematics, 
molecular biology/genetics, immunology, and embryology. It is not just
