Invertebrate Biology

Invertebrate Biology
Insects are one of the most successful animal groups on Earth, accounting for roughly 75% of all animal species. This course will examine several aspects of organismal biology in insects and related arthropods, such as comparative anatomy, physiology, reproduction, development, sensory behavior, and evolution. Hands-on experiences with insects will occur in the field and the lab and will culminate in an independent research project. Special topics will include medical and veterinary entomology, insect pest management, and the effects of climate change on insect populations. Oral and written reports are required.
