Other Courses I have Taught
Community Ecology (BSC 405)-
] This graduate course covers the ecology of communities of plants and animals. It is offered every other year.
Entomology (BSC 301)-[ 301 Syllabus 2016] This is an undergrad/grad course that covers biology of the insects.
Tropical Rain Forest Ecology (BSC 311 Coming Fall 2016-[Syllabus 2012] Team taught with some combination of: Ben Sadd, Joe Armstrong, Bill Perry, and Rachel Bowden.
This field course has two components. During Fall semester students
participate in a seminar course. In December, students go on a 10-day
field trip to the La Selva Research Station, Costa Rica. There they
conduct independent research projects, learn rain forest ecology and
natural history, and learn about ongoing research at La Selva. To see
pictures from the 1998, 1999, 2001, and 2002 field trips, visit my Costa
Rican Rain Forest Ecology page.
