Courses

 

Along with Introductory Biology, I teach or co-teach the following upper level courses:

 

ZOOL 441 and 442: Animal Ecology and Lab:

ZOOL 441 covers the basic principles of animal ecology and population biology. ZOOL 442 is the lab which requires field work involving physical activity. The lecture can be taken alone or with the lab. You must be enrolled in the lecture to take the lab course. This course is only taught during the fall semester.

 

ZOOL 323: Field Ornithology (taught at the Reelfoot Lake Environmental Field Station)

Field Ornithology focuses on the identification, classification, diversity, and ecology of birds. It is taught during the summer at the Reelfoot Lake Environmental Field Station. This course requires field work involving physical activity.

 

BIOL 443: Ecological Methodology (co-taught with Dr. Tom Blanchard and Dr. Jennifer Greenwood)

Introduction to common field techniques used to collect and analyze ecological data in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The course requires field work involving physical activity. This course is only taught during the fall semester.

BIOL 444: Conservation Biology

This course is an interdisciplinary introduction to conservation biology focusing on ecosystem conservation and restoration. This course incorporates information from many areas in science including genetics, organismal biology, ecology, and biogeography. This course is offered during the spring semester of even years.

BIOL 475: Field Investigations (co-taught with Dr. Tom Blanchard and Dr. Lisa Krueger)

This course focuses on field work in selected environements with an emphasis placed upon the interaction of the flora and fauna within that enviornment. Recently, this course is offered in the spring semester and includes a week long field trip to the Florida Gulf Coast around Panama City, FL. This course requires field work involving physical activity.
