This course is a field study of the plants, animals, natural features, and climate of a particular region of North America or perhaps another continent. It includes the study of ecological relationships in the selected study area. Students will be assessed by periodic quizzes in the field and a field presentation or a summative paper after returning to campus. This three week intensive field course will involve camping and extensive travel to National Parks, game reserves, and natural areas. A field trip fee will be charged commensurate with the distance traveled. (Offered periodically as an intensive course spanning 3 weeks before fall term, Christmas holiday, or 3 weeks after spring term. Offered concurrently with BIOL 225. Biology majors or minors should register for BIOL 325.)
