Field Botany and Ornithology
May 27-June 20, 2014
These are two field-based courses that will run in parallel over four weeks, “Field Botany of Flowering Plants” and “Field Ornithology.”
The first course is a field-based botanical study of vascular flora, with a focus on spring and summer wildflowers. Students learn plant systematics and advanced field identification skills through intensive field exercises and exploration of a variety of habitats.
The second course is a field-based exploration of birds with a dual emphasis on developing and refining field identification and classification skills and gaining an understanding of the evolution and ecology of Aves.
