MB5430:Marine Animal Behaviour
School of Marine and Tropical Biology
James Cook University, Townvillle, QLD 4811
This is a course that introduces students to the methods studying the behaviour of marine animals and gives them an overview of the present status of research on the behaviour of marine animals. An understanding of behaviour of animals sets the foundation for detailed studies that examine processes that determine abundance patterns through time. Behavioural studies are also crucial for the sensible interpretation of the mechanisms underlying the processes that are responsible for generating patterns.
This course is run in even years in July as a Masters Intensive (2 week) course. There is a 5d fieldtrip to Orpheus Island on the Great Barrier Reef. The last course run included students from 20 different countries.
