Our friend, Dr. James Wood, is teaching a course on scientific photography at the Bermuda Biological Station for Research (BBSR) this July 30 to August 19, 2006. Why is the BBSR a good place to learn scientific photography?
As a mid-Atlantic island, Bermuda has many unique animals and plants. These include a critically endangered skink, an endemic species of killifish, a critically endangered endemic seabird as well as many introduced invasive species. Bermuda’s ecosystems include anchialine ponds, rocky shores with limestone formations, sea grass beds, mangrove forests, caves and coral reefs. BBSR has been conducting field research for a hundred years. This course is taught in an environment where there is always a lot of interesting research going on.
