This is a 1 credit course for students who have successfully completed sophomore Biology. This course will focus on the diversity of life and the myriad of habitats to which they have adapted. The diversity of life will be investigated through hands-on labs and experiments, research projects and visually stunning video productions. In order to appreciate the diversity of life, we will also explore the diversity of habitats they exploit. The underlying goal of the course is to help students build an appreciation for the diversity of animals that share our planet and how important their specific habitats are to their survival.
