Evaluating Evidence in Biology & Medicine

Explores information and scientific literacies in biology and medicine, with emphasis on science as reported in the media and the use of insects and other organisms as model systems. We use evolutionary theory as the unifying framework for all life on earth. The ability to scrutinize science as reported in popular sources and to procure additional, credible information is emphasized. Prereq: Honors standing. GE nat sci bio course.

General Entomology Laboratory

Laboratories will introduce the major patterns of diversity among insects and will provide experience and develop abilities in the identification of insects. We will explore insect and other arthropod diversity and evolution by collecting, identifying and curating invertebrate specimens. A personally collected and identified insect collection is a major component of the laboratory grade. Prereq: Biology 1114 or 1114H. Prereq or concur: Entmlgy 4000. Not open to students with credit for 3000.

Experimental Insect Physiology and Molecular Biology

This laboratory course uses both classical and cutting-edge experimental techniques to uncover aspects of insect biology. We will conduct a series of novel experiments on diapausing and non-diapausing model insects to show physiological and molecular mechanisms used to survive winter. The course goal is to create a student co-authored manuscript to submit to the Journal of Insect Physiology. Prereq or concur: 6310.

Evolution and Diversity of Insects

The scope of this course extends from the molecular to at least the community and ecosystem levels. Elucidation of the pattern of insect evolution builds upon molecular, anatomical, and behavioral data. Students will study and learn about the evolutionary and developmental origins of anatomical structures and understand how those structures interact and function. Prereq: 3000 or 4000 (500), or equivalent, or permission of instructor.
