Students are expected to come to field sessions prepared for outdoor work, including data collection, regardless of the weather. Field and laboratory studies will emphasize techniques for species identification as well as investigating population biology, morphology and adaptations. Three lecture plus three laboratory hours per week. Credit(s): 4
