This nine hour course is designed for a broad audience. Most aspects of insect biology will be covered, with an emphasis on the adaptations that have made them the most diverse group of organisms. The variety of orders, families, and species will be reviewed, using examples found in the local area. Observational techniques will be demonstrated in a field trip to Mason Farm, and a tour of the Garden’s display areas will be used to discuss how to improve habitats for insects in our own backyards. No prerequisites.
