BIOL 32300 - Natural History of the Invertebrates

Course Credit: 1.25
This course is about the worlds of invertebrates and how these animals interact with their natural environment, with a focus on a subset of these species found in Northeast Ohio. We will study invertebrates in both terrestrial and aquatic habitats and explore the mechanisms they use to overcome the challenges of survival and reproduction. We will learn about the value and process of natural history studies, including requisite skills such as observation, collection, identification, literature searches, posing and answering interesting questions, and communicating science effectively. Two meetings weekly (6 hours) that are combined classroom, lab, and field studies. Prerequisite(s): BIOL 20200 , minimum grade C-; or permission of instructor; BIOL-32300L
