Classes

  • BIOL 347: Biology of Vertebrates - Lec

    A survey of the classification, structure, physiology, behavior, and ecology of the classes of vertebrates is presented through lectures and laboratory exercises.

  • BIOL 347: Biology of Vertebrates - Lab

    A survey of the classification, structure, physiology, behavior, and ecology of the classes of vertebrates is presented through lectures and laboratory exercises.

  • BIOL 363: Dinosaurs with Research

    Dinosaurs are a major component of the diverse Mesozoic faunas and floras. This course provides an introduction to the principles, processes, techniques, interpretations, and research in the study of Mesozoic life and geology. Upon completion, students will be able to describe, classify, and interpret dinosaur and other fossil remains, as well as have an understanding of significant changes in earth history. A research project and paper, as well as a required eight day field trip, will result in the observation and description of dinosaur fossils and track ways in museums and the field.
