Anatomy & Function of Marine
Vertebrates<http://www.sml.cornell.edu/sml_cc_anatfunc.html>

The Shoals Marine Laboratory (run jointly by Cornell University and the
University of New Hampshire on Appledore Island, Maine) invites applications
to its summer field course on the anatomy and function of marine
vertebrates.

The course is designed to introduce students to a comparative study of the
principal organ systems of vertebrates  (i.e., *fishes, sea turtles, marine
birds, marine mammals*) that are specifically adapted to the marine
environment. Rather than focusing only on description of anatomical
structure, the anatomy of structures will be integrated with function,
biological role, and evolutionary relationships. Laboratory exercises cover
osteology, dissection, behavior and biomechanics.

*Faculty*:
Dr. Frank Fish <http://darwin.wcupa.edu/%7Ebiology/fish/>       Department
of Biology, West Chester University

Dr. Willy Bemis <http://www.eeb.cornell.edu/Bemis/default.html>     Cornell
University, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
                           AND Director, Shoals Marine Laboratory


Join students at the Shoals Lab from all over the US and the world in
studying on Appledore Island this summer. Financial aid and scholarships are
available. Apply early to receive first consideration for aid.

Paid research internships<http://www.sml.cornell.edu/sml_students_internships.html>are
