BIOL 314 - Biodiversity: (subtitle)


Credit(s): 3
Lecture: 2
Non-Lecture: 3
This is an intensive, field-based course that looks at a specific region, its biological diversity and the physical and biotic factors that are significant in controlling this diversity. A variety of organisms will be considered with most attention given to organisms that are most readily observed (common plants, vertebrates and insects). Students will learn about specific organisms and understand how their structure, physiology and behavior influence their distribution and thereby the diversity of a region. The course will take advantage of the unique features of a particular region to consider the processes and the physical and biological attributes that contribute to the biodiversity of a region. May be taken once for major credit. Restricted to Majors and Minors. Offered during summer or during winter/spring break.

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 203 , BIOL 222 , or permission of the instructor.
