Detailed Information:
Founded in 1998, ITME is currently based in the U.S.A., where preparations for the establishment of a permanent office and field station in Dominica are under way. Dominica’sspectacular volcanic topography, and the relative paucity of research stations in the Lesser Antilles, make it a prime geographic location for marine research. In June 1999, ITME’s academic program will be launched with a six-week Summer course, Marine Resource Conservation, followed by the three-month Fall program starting in September 1999. All courses are experiential in nature, issue-driven, and aimed at advanced undergraduate biology andenvironmental studies majors, however graduate students are welcome. The inter-disciplinary curricula will incorporate ongoing research projects oncoastal habitats, allowing students to participate in the exploration of Dominica’s marine life. When courses are not in session, ITME will operateas regular research station, available to visiting scientists and student groups from other institutions.
