Course Credit: 1.25
This course will focus on the evoluationa nd ecology of plant-insect interactions in basic and applied contexts. We will take a case study approach to exploring major themes in the area of plant-insect interactions, including pollination biology, plant-herbivore intereacions, plant carnivory, and agricultural pest management. Throughout the course, we will emphasize both content and skill knowledge through a combination of lectures, discussions, lab activities, and field trips. For both plants and insects, skills learned will include morphology, family characteristics, the use of keys and basic collecting techniques.
