Vertebrate Field Biology [E]

The evolution, physiology, ecology, behavior and identification of major vertebrate classes will be discussed. Required laboratory field trips will emphasize identification of local vertebrates through observational and quantitative sampling and collection techniques. Three one-hour lectures and one three-hour laboratory per week. NOTE: Field trips and laboratories will require moderate amounts of walking over varied terrain and may require early-morning meetings. Prerequisite: BIO 104 or BIO 108 or BIO 120 or BIO 230
