2000 Edwin W. Pauley Summer Program in Marine Biology

Elasmobranch Biology

June - August, 2000

2002 Pauley Summer Program Group

The Edwin W. Pauley Summer Program in Marine Biology is a rigorous research and training program which draws faculty and students from around the world.  Each summer, a new topic is chosen to be the focus of that program's research.  This year's topic was elasmobranch biology, and the program was coordinated by Dr. Kim Holland. The five-week course included lectures, field work, and research experience as well as trips to the Bishop Museum and Waikiki Aquarium.
