Plant Biology at Cornell University has a long and distinguished history characterized by faculty and graduates who have made major contributions to science, higher education, and public policy over the past years.
These faculty have a great diversity of interests, which attracts high caliber undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers. Through its broad-based and innovative studies of basic plant biology, the Section of Plant Biology is positioned to contribute solutions to these problems at local, state, national, and global scales.
The Section of Plant Biology at Cornell is home to basic plant biology research on campus.
After the course, the participants will have the necessary knowledge and skills to identify relevant research questions in hydrozoan biology, plan and conduct a small study focused on these organisms, and identify the most common hydrozoan species occurring in the North Sea and Eastern Atlantic Ocean. The location of the Espegrend Marine Biological Station in the proximity of deep and shallow Norwegian fjords as well as close to Bergen airport and within a short drive to the city centre will provide access to a diverse marine hydrozoan fauna from benthic and pelagic environments, while keeping the logistics of the course on track.
The station has excellent laboratory and accommodation facilities and is well equipped with aquaria, an auditorium, stereomicroscopes, and running sea water. Min 12, max 20 students.

Biological Systematics The state of the art av Alessandro Minelli. Spara som favorit. Skickas inom vardagar.
To some potential readers of this book the description of Biological System- atics as an art may seem outdated and frankly wrong. For most people art is subjective and unconstrained by universal laws. While one picture, play or poem may be internally consistent comparison between different art products is meaningless except by way of the individual artists.
- Molecular systematics: A synthesis of the common methods and the state of knowledge?
- The Nature and Prospect of Bioethics: Interdisciplinary Perspectives.
- The state of the art;
On the other hand modern Biological Systematics - particularly phenetics and cladistics - is offered as objective and ultimately governed by universal laws. This implies that classifications of different groups of organisms, being the products of systematics, should be comparable irrespective of authorship.
