            Most welcome to the Advanced course in Marine Biology!

            Per Carlsson is course responsible and you can reach me on the phone:
            042-356564, or by e-mail: per.carlsson@marinbio.hbg.lu.se

            Feel welcome to contact me if you have some questions before the course starts.

            The course literature is mainly composed of scientific articles that you will get handed
            out during the course.

            Course language will be english in case there will be students participating who are
            not swedish speaking.

            The grading of your performance during the course will be based on your activity
            during seminars, group work, practical work during the experimental parts, the
            written experimental reports, the oral presentation of experiments and the oral and
            written presentation of the individual project work.

            All parts except the lectures are compulsory. Prescence at the lectures will, however,
            facilitate the full understanding and fruitful participation in the group work, seminars
            and the experimental parts.

            During the course you will do an individual small project, where you read 2-5
            scientific articles dealing with a well defined subject. You can choose any subject in
            marine sciences you wold like to go deeper into, the important is that it will be in a
            well defined subject which is not purely descriptive but instead contains the scientific
            process, i e hypothesis, methods, results and discussion/conclusion. You make a short
            written resume of the articles and discuss/evaluates them (about 2 pages of text) and
            prepares an oral presentation (15 minutes).

We also make a journey to Scotland where we visit Oceanlab in Aberdeen and SAMS
(Scottish Association of Marine Sciences) in Oban. During this trip we will listen to
several scientists describing their work and we prepare ourselves by reading some
scientific articles connected to their work before we leave (or during the travel). We
also prepare at least one question each to every scientists talk (based on the articles
handed out) so we are prepared and able to ask interesting questions!

For the trip to Scotland you need a passport (of course!), and you have to show that
you have a valid travel insurance (usually your home insurance covers this). If you do
not have a travel insurance, you have to sign a special student travel insurance
available at this web page (at least 10 days before leaving):

http://www.kammarkollegiet.se/forsakr/studentut.html

You must also have a so called “EU-card” that you can get at “Försäkringskassan “
(The social insurance office):

http://www.fk.se/privatpers/utomlands/resa/sjukvards_kort/

You will get more information during the introductory meeting on Friday 31 October
at 9:15 (in the lecture room “Nordsjön”)
