At present, I teach two primary courses: Animal Diversity (Bio 288) and Introductory Biology (Bio 162).
Bio 288’s focus is primarily on the Metazoa (multicellular animals) and we take a genealogical approach to addressing the evolutionary history of extant and extinct animal forms. We emphasize as much as possible live material in our comparative labs and as most animal diversity is marine and invertebrate, this gives many students their first up close look at living invertebrates such as echinoderms and cephalopods.
Bio 162 is the large enrollment Introductory Biology class and I teach the 2nd (ecology and evolution) half.
