Extractions: FRIDAY HARBOR LABORATORIES ADVISORY COMMITTEE Notes from the June 15, 2001, Meeting Present: Thomas Daniel, Daniel Grunbaum, Molly Jacobs, Marsha Landolt, Malcolm Parks, Richard Strathmann, and Dennis Willows Absent: Debra Friedman, Albert Gordon, Alvin Kwiram, and Robert Waaland Visitors: Scott Schwinge and Peggy Fanning Dennis opened the meeting by welcoming everyone to Friday Harbor Laboratory. He proceeded to report on the new duplexes that should be completed within a week or two. They have run into some problems with the construction outfit (Rocket Construction), which was the lowest bidder for the project. So, we fall into the "lowest bid syndrome" by running into problems like unpaid bills, one lien against the University and Rocket Construction, etc. Whiteley and Ben Hall are proceeding to build 3, 1-2 bedroom units ($700,000). The construction should start late summer and finish by February. Discussion about other developments: - Molly Jacobs suggested they post who is at the Center and what they are studying. It would be nice to build a better interaction amongst the scholars. Another way to help promote this interaction would be to have more functions like the beer and popcorn socials. Dennis talked about the fund raising with Mellon Foundation to raise salary support for faculty to bring diversity to the research apprenticeship teams. He is very hopeful because the Mellon Foundation solicited the proposal and seems keen to partner with us on this project.

Extractions: Requirements for EEB Concentration Jobs and Internships Undergraduate Research Marine Science Consortium ... Home The Ecology and Environmental Biology Concentration Students in the biology program at Shippensburg University can now choose a concentration in Ecology and Environmental Biology (EEB). Students in the EEB concentration earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. In addition to courses in the Biology Core Curriculum, Students in the EEB concentration take a variety of courses dealing with ecology and the environment. In addition, students must complete either an internship or an independent research project. To see the specific requirements for the EEB Concentration, click here What is Ecology? Ecology is the study of the interactions between living organisms and their environment. These interactions, in turn, affect the distribution and abundance of organisms. Ecologists study a tremendous variety of organisms and environments from microorganisms in the soil or a puddle of water to plants and animals in a forest or ocean. Since human activity often has a detrimental impact on the natural world, ecologists are often involved in identifying and finding solutions to environmental problems.

Degree Programs In Biology Current elective courses that are offered include Evolution, marine biology, Fieldbiology, Molecular Cell biology, Human Anatomy and Physiology http://depts.gallaudet.edu/biology/degree_programs.html
Extractions: The Department of Biology at Gallaudet offers both Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) tracks in biology. These programs are described in detail in the Gallaudet Undergraduate Catalog The B.A. program is designed for majors who are seeking employment after college, and as a second major for education majors who aim to become high-school biology teachers. The B.S. program is especially designed for majors who plan to continue to graduate, medical, dental or veterinary school. The B.A. and B.S. degree programs both require similar biology courses, but differ in the amount of additional science courses outside of the major. B.S. students are expected to take additional courses in physics, organic chemistry, biochemistry and mathematics. The B.S. program is set up such that B.S. majors in biology take reduced general education courses to compensate for the large number of science courses. Both the B.A. and B.S. programs have built-in flexibility, allowing for students to take electives in their field of interest, whether it may be marine biology or molecular biology. In addition, through the consortium of universities, Gallaudet students have the ability to take biology elective courses in virtually every area of interest imaginable.
Under The Sea Get a good biology and chemistry foundation and then start to take specialty courses. mayhave killed the cat, but cats rarely train to be marine biologists http://www.touchthesea.org/be a marine.htm
Extractions: There are several divisions of ocean study, such as Physical Oceanography, chemical oceanography, geological oceanography, biological oceanography, and of course, marine biology. We at Under the Sea, specialize in the education side of these fields but also participate in some research. Here are a few suggestions on how you may pursue the goal of becoming a marine biologist or other kind of marine scientist: 1- Bathe every day - no one likes a stinky person so remember - ya ain't gonna work here smelling like that! And brush your teeth, too! Seriously, hygiene will aid you in getting any job. 2- Read - I mean everything. The more you know, the further you go. Heck, if you fail to achieve the goal of Marine Biologist, at least you will be ready for Who Wants to Be a Millionaire! 3- Take Notes - Every time you learn something new, into the note book it goes. Every time you read a book, write down the title, author, and summary of the book, as well as things that you learned from the book and things you disagree with.

A student can combine courses from 2 or more Science disciplines, or take courses from outside the Science disciplines. The basic rules for the degree are set out in the following sections under Program Objectives and Award Rules. The main thing that students in the Science program need to ensure is that they complete at least one Major and either a second Major or a Minor sequence. At least 84 units of credit (out of a total of 144) must be taken from Science. The remainder may be in another Faculty. Subject to certain conditions a student may be permitted to continue into a fourth year to complete an honours degree. This program has been designed to: 1. develop and sustain an interest in and knowledge of Science.
The Freshwater Science Degree At Stirling Environmental Science; marine biology; Molecular Cell biology. The University'scourses are subject to a continuous process of review. http://www.stir.ac.uk/Departments/NaturalSciences/DBMS/undergrad/freshwater.html
Extractions: This page contains information relevant to the Freshwater Science Degree course. Either read the whole page or click on the links below to jump to a particular section. Water is essential for all life and in the United Kingdom and in many other countries there are concerns over the quantity and quality of water resources. This awareness of freshwater concerns has been growing in the last two decades. At the moment unprecedented media attention has been focused on privatisation of water companies in England and Wales and the re-organisation of River Purification Boards in Scotland. Furthermore, these institutional changes have been overshadowed by the signs of water shortages and concerns over the impacts of climate change scenarios on future water supplies. And why the University of Stirling?

Extractions: The undergraduate biology major was created for students who wish to obtain a broad, interdisciplinary training in the biological sciences rather than enter one of the traditional life-science departments. Other such departments include Biochemistry - Biophysics Botany and Plant Pathology Entomology Microbiology , and Zoology . Biology students may transfer to one of these departments if their interests change as they progress in their undergraduate studies. Career Opportunities in Biology Biology is basic to many disciplines and professions. It offers career opportunities in government agencies, business firms, and industry. An undergraduate biology major also receives excellent preparation for graduate school or one of the professional schools, such as medicine, dentistry, optometry, or veterinary medicine. Biologists work in food production, in medicine, with regulatory agencies, and with public and private groups concerned about the environment. Others teach or do research, or both. Some recent OSU biology graduates are employed as: biological researchers; sales representatives for pharmaceutical or publishing companies; teachers in high schools, community colleges, and universities; naturalists; aquatic ecologists; physicians, veterinarians, dentists, and environmental consultants. Many graduates go on to graduate schools at other universities.
