Opportunities for shark research in the Bahamas, Winter-Spring 2002.
Volunteer positions at the BBFS Sharklab will be available starting January 15, 2002 and continuing through the year. The Bimini Biological Field Station in collaboration with marine biologists from the University of Illinois, University of Glasgow and the Plymouth University (UK) will be conducting field research on ecodynamics of a shark nursery and the predator-prey relations of young lemon sharks. A third, continuing project concerning the genetics of reproductive biology will involve intensive tagging and collection of DNA from the 2002 cohort of lemon sharks born at Bimini lagoon.
If you are interested in joining the research team for a minimum of one month, especially in January 2002, please contact Dr. Samuel H. Gruber at sgruber@...
