Entomology

Insect Pathology

The basic principles of pathology as applied to pathogens infecting insects and related arthropods. Course content will include how pathogens manifest diseases in individuals and populations, descriptions of major micro- and macro-organisms that routinely cause reduced fitness in arthropods, as well as how insects respond to pathogen challenge, both physiologically and behaviorally. Prereq: Biology 1113 or 1114, or Grad standing.

Insects of Ohio

This lecture and field course focuses on the basic biology and diversity of insects and related arthropods of Ohio. We will study anatomy, physiology, behavior, and evolutionary processes associated with insects, and learn how these principles contribute to the diversity of insects in Ohio. Students will also learn how to identify insects during field based collection and ID sessions. Prereq: Not open to students with credit for 4001.
