<p class="MsoNormal">This field-intensive course covers the biology, management and conservation of marine mammals using a variety of tools including genetic analysis and photo-identification.  Detailed consideration is given to adaptation to a marine environment,
 ecology, history of exploitation of the large whales, and conservation. Laboratory and field exercises address behavior, ecology, and communication of local populations of marine mammals. The course is suitable for both undergraduate and graduate students.
