Summer course in embryology of marine invertebrates, 2010

Embryology of Invertebrates, White Sea Biological Station, 04 – 20 of July 2010

The first international summer course in embryology of marine invertebrates has taken place at the White Sea Biological Station form the 4th to 21st of July 2010. Twelve students from Russia, Ukraine, Germany and Jordan joined in the course taking part in the practical lab work. Many field station visitors and students from the Moscow State University have attended the lectures.


Practical classes took palace in the newly built laboratory located right on the sea coast.


A seawater flow system maintaining constant temperature around 10-12ºC was designed in order to rare cultures of living embryos and larvae of marine invertebrates in the lab. Fifteen species of invertebrates were studied form the fertilization till formation of larvae or juveniles (sea urchin Strongylocentrotus pallidus, starfishes Asterias rubens and Pteraster militaris, hydrioids Dynamena pumilla, Gonothyraea loveni, Aglantha digitale, gastropod Littorina saxatilis, nudibranch Coryphella, bivalve Mytilus edulis, polychaete Spirorbis, nematode Pontonema vulgare, nemerteans Poseidon viridis and Poseidon ruber, bryozoan Cribrilina annulata, and amphipod Gammarus).


The course program
included daily lectures on the different aspects of developmental biology in major invertebrate phyla, as well as field collecting trips (intertidal sampling, trawling and plankton sampling) and extensive laboratory work. Students had an opportunity to learn how to obtain rape gametes, perform artificial fertilization and maintain cultures of developing invertebrates in the lab including cleaning and feeding of planktotrophic larvae with marine algae. All course participants have presented scientific results in biology of invertebrates of their own ongoing research projects.
