INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL ON BIODIVERSITY AND SYSTEAMTCIS 1997


* The Canadian Museum of Nature and Queen's University are presenting an
intensive workshop dedicated to providing a limited number of students (25)
the opportunity to interact with, and be taught by, some of the pre-eminent
researchers in the fields of ECOLOGY, EVOLUTION, CONSERVATION, ECONOMICS,
POLICY and LAW (SEE FACULTY LIST BELOW); all assembled to provide a
uniquely integrated approach to the study of biodiversity. For anyone who
has experienced the anonymity of large college classes or giant
conferences/professional meetings, the opportunity to discuss major
concepts and issues with some of the foremost thinkers in these fields will
prove an exciting, involving, and intellectually rewarding experience.

* The course runs from July 9 through August 7 in Ottawa and  Kingston
(Canada), and at the Queen's Biological Station (north of Kingston).
Although the course is 4 weeks long, the first five days (Ottawa) comprise
an overview module that can be attended without continuing for the
remainder of the course.  This primary module allows more time-constrained
participants an immersion into the field of issues centred on  biodiversity
and systematics.

* Further details and an on-line application form is provided at our web
site: http://biology.queensu.ca/~biodiv or call 613-545-6128.
