BIO 2830 – 4 credits
Janis L. Bowman

Students will participate in environmental research that pertains to their area of interest and/or as requested by local environmental organizations. As part of this experience, students will read, interpret, and present published scientific research papers. Students will be responsible for experimental design, maintaining a laboratory journal, and acquiring the necessary laboratory and field research skills to complete their research and present their results. Students are divided into either Environmental I or Environmental II, depending on their level of experience, but are blended together in a single course. Environmental II students are expected to function like an advanced student. In addition to Environmental I expectations, they are also expected to understand and communicate how the papers they present fit into the underlying science. Prerequisite: ENG 1530; BIO 1570; and BIO 1580, or BIO 1830, or BIO 2550 or BIO 2600, or BIO 2660, or BIO 2670. Master Course Syllabus
