LECTURE 1:  REFUGE N THE DEEP?  Exploring deep coral reefs as potential conservation habitat    By:  Corrine Kane

Deep coral reefs are some of the least explored ocean habitats, but may act as valuable conservation areas for shallow coral reef species.  Come explore these beautiful reefs and learn about their potential as refugia for coral reef fishes.

LECTURE 2:  FINDING NEMO MANINI  Characterizing disperal patterns of the common coral reef fish across the Hawaiian Archipelago    By: Richard Coleman, Ph.D. candidate

Native Hawaiian community leaders have begun to implement community-based management strategies for heavily targeted fish species in order to maintain future food.  A first step is to determine the source of fish populations using genetic methods across the Hawaiian Archipelago.

LECTURE 3:  MALES VS. FEMALES:  Feeding behavior of a large marine predator, the Northern elephant seal    By:  Sarah Kienle, Ph.D. candidate

Northern elephant seals are large marine predators that feed on fish and squid throughout the North Pacific Ocean.  Male and female northern elephant seals dramatically differ in several aspects of their biology and these differences affect heir survival, breeding, and foraging success.
