A message from Kristine Grayson:
We are pleased to announce that we will be teaching a course in Field Herpetology this summer at Mountain Lake Biological Station, VA. We hope you will share this opportunity with your students. The Field Herpetology course, along with five other excellent courses, can be viewed at: http://mlbs.org/courses.html
The Field Herp course is three weeks and runs from July 12 – 30. We will explore the ecology, behavior, and conservation of amphibians and reptiles, with a focus on amphibians of the Southeast. A large portion of the course will involve field-based exercises to learn methodology for identifying and monitoring a wide variety of species. Course goals also include examining current literature on amphibian and reptile conservation and conducting collaborative research projects.
Both graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to apply. Applications are accepted at http://mlbs.org/genappform/courseapp.htm on a rolling basis. Review of applications for financial aid begins on March 15th. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to view the syllabus or for any questions about the course.
