                           Stable Isotope Ecology
                    Lecture and Laboratory Short Courses
                  University of Utah (Biology 581 and 582)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This coming June 1997 we will again offer a lecture-laboratory short course
in stable isotope ecology.

These will be multi-instructor lecture (Biology 581, morning) and laboratory
(Biology 582, afternoon) short courses offered to graduate students and
postdoctoral investigators interested in learning more about the application
of stable isotopes at natural abundance levels for environmental and
ecological studies. The courses will:

   * be offered June 16-27, 1997 at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City
   * be limited to 18 participants in order to maximize laboratory and
     instrument access
   * consist of a morning lecture-discussion course and an afternoon
     laboratory course; there will be 10 course instructors, experts
     selected from across the country for their breadth and for their
     interest in teaching and interacting with students
   * include a hands-on laboratory experience each day, including full
     access and use of two delta S mass spectrometers equipped with
     elemental analyzers as well as continuous flow capacities, a 252 mass
     spectrometer equipped with GC, continuous flow, pre-con, laser, and
     elemental analyzer capacities, and vacuum preparation lines for organic
     and inorganic compounds of biological interest
   * several of the evenings will be set aside for discussions of current
     research interests and also there will be opportunities for social
     events in the nearby Wasatch Mountains
   * provide an opportunity for students to run some of their own sample
     materials
