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, marinebirds, 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.
