来吧和我一起去田野生物课!

深海,海洋的区域低于200米,是地球上最大的生物群系 - 广阔,遥远,荒凉。这些条件为深海生活和研究它的科学家创造了独特的挑战。研究这种膨胀和极端生态系统的挑战也使得新发现成熟,并使我们作为科学家们挑战地球和超越地球生命的范式。

巨型Isopod(Isopoda)

您可以成为这一发现的一部分,并了解深海,直到您的心灵和灵魂满足。该课程将从生物学,生物化学,生态和保护科学的概念应用于深海的研究。 本科和研究生级课程(3学分)是6月7日至26日,2020年在Lumcon’S defelice海洋中心在美丽的Cocodri,路易斯安那州。 学生将体验到实地和实验室设置的方面,包括:

  • 为浅层和深水抽样工作的船上的研究船
  • 收集和识别无脊椎动物
  • 与深海的历史和现代的景色一起参与
  • 使用大型数据库来测试生态假设
  • 利用分析软件
  • 使用多样性度量测量社区结构
  • 从发起假设的生成到最终产品
  • 建立一个强大的社交媒体运动,从事深海科学的普遍观众

伟大的消息是,该课程相对便宜,并且有很多奖学金基金可用。有关更多课程详情,课程申请或奖学金应用访问 //lumcon.edu/2020-summer-courses/

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://jiaxiangsuji.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.
