BIOL 1134 Evolution, Ecology, & Diversity: This course explores foundational principles of organismal, ecological, and evolutionary biology. Active learning activities are used in lecture and lab.
PBIO 3163 Economic Botany: Humans depend on plants, but of the thousands of plant species that exist, we depend on a relatively small number. This course looks at the dynamics of plant-human interactions from the plant and human perspectives to better understand not only how humans depend on plants, but why we chose the particular ones we did.
PBIO/METR/MICRO 4693/5693 Field Sampling Techniques: This is a field-based course taught at OU’s Kessler Atmospheric & Ecological Field Station. Students learn different techniques for sampling the biotic and abiotic environment at different scales ranging from 1m X 1m field plots to planetary-scale, satellite imagery.
Students observe proper methods for sampling amphibians.
