SURI: Environmental I — 3011
BIO 1830 – 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 I students are expected to function as technicians. As such, they will learn how to function in a research setting, learn scientific record-keeping and how to design and perform a well controlled experiment reproducibly. Prerequisite: BIO 1550 or BIO 1570. J summer. Master Course Syllabus
