My Classes

BIOL 203:
Principles of Ecology

    A study of the interrelationship of organisms and their environment. Emphasis is placed upon levels of ecological organization. BIOL 117 and BIOL 119.

BIOL 204:
Ecology Laboratory

    Selected laboratory research projects in levels of ecological organization from organisms to populations, communities, and ecosystems. Prerequisites/Corerequisite: BIOL 203.

BIOL 327:
Molecular Ecology

    This course explores how molecular methods are used to address research questions in ecology. The techniques for generating molecular marker data as well as the properties and applications of different types of molecular data will be examined. Topics will include phylogeography, population genetics, conservation genetics, behavioral ecology, adaptation, ecological genetics, speciation, hybridization, and microbial ecology. Prerequisites: BIOL 203 and BIOL 222. Offered every spring
