Undergraduate Marine Resources Population Dynamics Workshop

This was sent to me from Bruce who received it from an ex-CCS student. It sounds like a GREAT opportunity.

The 11th annual Undergraduate Marine Resources Population Dynamics (MRPD) Workshop

March 2-8, 2014

The NMFS RTR Program, located at the University of Florida, is holding its eleventh annual Marine Resources Population Dynamics Workshop. This workshop will introduce fifteen outstanding undergraduate students from around the country to the field of population dynamics using high-profile examples from harvested fish species and protected species (such as sea turtles or marine mammals). The workshop will take place March 2-8, 2013 at the Keys Marine Lab in Layton, FL. The program will cover all costs for the students selected to participate. The workshop is designed for US Citizens who have strong math skills and enjoy math, who also have a basic understanding of ecology.
