BIOL 435 : Herpetology
Lectures will introduce students to topics of importance to the study of amphibians and reptiles. In the lecture, we will focus on anatomy, physiology, taxonomy, ecology, behavior, and conservation of this fauna. In laboratories, we will focus on external anatomy, identification skills, habitat preferences, distribution, and collection techniques. We will place emphasis on the fauna in our immediate area, but we will also cover amphibians and reptiles from other areas of Texas in our laboratories. 3 Theory 1 Lab. Lab fee.
