***DOMINICA, LESSER ANTILLES***

INSTITUTE FOR TROPICAL MARINE ECOLOGY - PERMANENT OPERATIONS
NOW IN PLACE

We are pleased to announce that the Institute for Tropical
Marine Ecology ITME in Dominica is now operating on a year
round basis. ITME offers 3-month semester programs (Fall and
Spring), 6-week summer courses in Marine Ecology, and serves
as base for visiting researchers and student groups.

See http://www.itme.org for details.

ITME operates out of and manages the Archbold Tropical
Research and Education Center (ATREC). The facilities are
located approximately 13km north of Roseau and 4km inland
from the main coastal road on the western side of Dominica.
Perched in a narrow valley of lush tropical rainforest, the
site overlooks the Caribbean Sea and offers spectacular
views and a comfortable cool climate--particularly welcoming
after a day at sea.

The complex consists of 2 two-story buildings and 3 houses,
1 dry lab, a herbarium, a classroom, and accommodation space
for approximately 30 visitors with spacious common areas
available as well. Personnel and infrastructure for full
room and board services, as well as transportation are also
in place. Marine operations are currently being carried out
with the support of a small dive center, a few minutes form
ITME. Two 7-meter aluminum boats with 115HP outboard engines
are at our disposal.

There has been little exploration of Dominica's marine
environment. Opportunities for marine biologists to be among
the first to study these waters abound. As a relatively
young, volcanic island Dominica has a narrow shelf and
spectacular drop-offs. Wall diving in the south will
fascinate sponge and Antipatharia lovers, and thrill seekers
alike. In contrast, Dominica's central western coast is
lined with patch reefs and spur and groove formations. The
eastern and northern coastal waters remain virtually
unexplored at this time.

If you would like more information on our academic programs,
carrying out research in Dominica, or bringing student
groups, please contact us at:
