BIO 270 - PII Biodiversity, Evolution and Natural History

(Perspectives II course in science) Biological diversity of native and local species is critical for the sustainability of ecosystems and the biosphere. To better understand the nature of this diversity, one must go into the field and learn about the species that are a part of local habitats. This requeres knowledge of how plants and animals are identified followed by purposeful research to collect data. This is a dual-hybrid course. It is a hybrid between classroom instruction and online interaction and learning as well as a hybrid between direct instruction and research/inquiry learning. Students will build their own virtual collection of specimens and create a simple website to communicate their discoveries with other curious naturalists. This course begins at the end of the spring semester, research is completed during the summer and the course concludes at the beginning of the fall semester. Course Codes: BR. Prereq: PEQ in Science.
