VIMS Websites A-Z


  1. Employment
    This jobs site advertises employment opportunities at VIMS and the College of William and Mary.
  2. Environmental and Aquatic Animal Health
    The Department of Environmental & Aquatic Animal Health identifies and detects toxicological, pathobiological and biochemical agents in the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed that affect the health of important aquatic organisms and surrounding human populations.
  3. Ecotoxicology
    Ecotoxicology is the extension of classic toxicology to include effects to ecological entities such as individual animals or plants, populations, communities, ecosystems, landscapes, and the entire biosphere. It is the science of contaminants in the biosphere and their effects on constituents of the biosphere, including humans.
  4. Education
    VIMS plays an important role in marine-science education for a wide variety of audiences and age levels.
  5. Eastern Shore Laboratory
    The Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences' Eastern Shore Laboratory (ESL) serves as both a field station in support of research and teaching and as a site for resident research in coastal ecology and aquaculture.
  6. Ecosystem Modeling
    Modeling is the process of building a mathematical abstraction of an actual system. The purpose in ecological modeling is often systems analysis, an approach that attempts to understand fundamental attributes of ecosystems with the goal of predicting behavior. Or a model could be purely descriptive, a way of discovering the mechanisms that explain the structure or behavior of an ecosystem.
  7. Elizabeth River - Transport and Fate of Sediment / Contaminants
    This website is about the transport and fate of sediment-associated polycyclic hydrocarbons and trace elements in the Elizabeth River.
  8. Environmental Chemistry
    This website examines the study of Environmental Chemistry including sources, distribution, transport, fate and bioavailability of organic and elemental pollutants.
  9. Environmental Microbiology
    Research in environmental microbiology focuses on microorganisms and microbially-mediated processes that occur in estuaries and watersheds
  10. Events at VIMS
    This website provides information on upcoming events and calendars for VIMS.
  11. Events Setup Form
    This website provides a form for room reservations and special event setups.
  12. Evolutionary Ecology
    The Marine Biodiversity Lab at the College of William and Mary's Virginia Institute of Marine Science is a group of people working in Emmett Duffy's lab, with broad interests in the ecology, evolution, diversity, and conservation of marine organisms and ecosystems.
