ENT109: Insect Taxonomy and Field Ecology
Insect Diversity and Natural History in the California Sierra Nevada
Entomology 109: Insect Taxonomy and Field Ecology, 7 Units. An intensive five-week field course based at Sagehen Creek Field Station, in the northern Sierra Nevada of California, with excursions to different habitats ranging from alpine meadows to Great Basin Desert. The course is directed towards students with previous entomological experience such as Ent100 or an equivalent course. Under special circumstances this can be waived, but previous exposure to insects (and insect anatomy), at least in a laboratory setting, is most helpful.
Deadlines: The application deadlines fall in the spring quarter, but class enrollment should be settled by March, at the latest, to facilitate planning for lab space, teaching supplies, vehicles, etc. Please note that this course is offered only in even-numbered years.
