Dear Colleagues, 
I would be grateful if you would post and/or circulate the enclosed ad (below) 
for a summer course (July 25th- August 26th 2011) on fish swimming to any 
graduate student who might be interested. I would of course be pleased to 
respond to any questions and to send further details on request. Friday Harbor 
Laboratories can also offer financial aid for the course. More details on 
financial aid and bursaries can be found at 
http://depts.washington.edu/fhl/studentSummer2011.html#SumB-2     and by

Paolo Domenici  - CNR-IAMC 

SUMMER GRADUATE COURSE AT FRIDAY HARBOR LABORATORIES,  WA, USA.
 
TITLE: FISH SWIMMING: Kinematics, Ecomorphology, Behavior & Environmental 
Physiology
 
July 25- August 26, 2011
5 weeks: M-F 8-5; S 8-12
Fish 565 (9 credits)
Instructors: 
Dr. Paolo Domenici (CNR, Italy)
Dr. John Steffensen (University of Copenhagen, Denmark)
   Course description: Fish swimming is a multidisciplinary area of research that 
encompasses biomechanics, physiology, ecology and behavior. Knowledge of 
fish swimming is relevant both for students interested in mechanisms of 
locomotion, and those interested in locomotor adaptations to the environment. 
The main subjects will be 1) the kinematics and performance of swimming in 
fish using various locomotory modes, 2) the ecomorphology of fish locomotion, 
3) locomotor strategies, 4) metabolic aspects of fish swimming, and 5) the 
effect of various environmental factors on fish swimming. These topics will be 
treated in lectures and laboratory sessions. Students will learn techniques of 
video analysis, kinematics, energetics and respirometry. The first half of the 
course will have an emphasis on lectures and explanations of techniques for 
studying fish swimming in the laboratory. In the second half of the course, 
emphasis will be placed on laboratory work. Students will pursue independent 
research projects. Enrollment will be limited to 15 graduate students.
