Field Zoology

Bio 49

Field Zoo. covers taxonomic techniques, natural history, phylogenetic relationships of vertebrates, and the function of research collections. Emphasis is on mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. There are frequent laboratories and field trips (including at least one overnight) to observe, identify, and collect animals.  This is a class for the serious vertebrate biologist or the seriously curious. It should not be entered into unadvisedly. *Field Zoology is only taught every other spring term (2004, 2006, ...)
