Overview of the approaches and techniques used by contemporary field biologists for cataloging, quantifying, and comparing patterns of biodiversity across plants, animals, and fungi at multiple spatial and temporal scales.
Upon completion of the course students should be able to:
1. Identify, quantify and compare biological diversity for important taxonomic groups in natural habitats around the DC region.
2. Evaluate how humans directly and indirectly impact this biodiversity.
3. Present projects in oral and written format. A variety of writing modalities will be used to convey and critique the research project.
4. Demonstrate critical thinking skills by combining the skills learned to identify, quantify and compare diversity during the field practicum midterm.
