BIO 288 - Biology of Mammals
BIO 288 provides biology concentrators with a survey of the animal phyla in the context of discussions of major issues in ecology and evolution. Students see the diversity of behavior, mating systems, life history, and diverse interactions.
EEB/SNRE/Environ 451 - Biology of Mammals
EEB 451 introduces students to the diversity of mammals. Through laboratory exercises (one four-hour laboratory period / week) and lectures, participants will have an opportunity to see and learn about species representing all of the major groups of mammals. We will review their evolutionary history; examine their adaptations and lifestyles; and discuss current research in ecology, behavior, zoogeography, and systematics. An optional text supplements the lectures.
EEB 453 - Field Mammalogy
EEB 453 provides an introduction to the study of mammals. Students will learn methods of studying mammals in the field by carrying out a series of research projects on the wild mammals of northern Michigan. These projects will be designed to give familiarity with areas of active research on the ecology of mammals and practical experience with the excitement and headaches of formulating hypotheses, carrying out fieldwork, and analyzing data. Some familiarity with elementary statistics is helpful but not necessary. Fulfills the LS&A Upper Level Writing Requirement.
