Mammalogy is an integrative biology course. The material will bridge evolutionary biology, ecology, anatomy, and physiology. Students will learn to identify local mammals and the material presented in class will highlight examples from research on mammals to give context to the topics covered in lecture and lab. The lecture and lab for this class are concurrent.
BIOL3101 Comparative Anatomy
Taught by Hood every fall, 2012-2018
