In the laboratory students will conduct research to answer novel questions, explore aquatic ecosystems first-hand on field trips, and learn important laboratory techniques for monitoring watersheds. This course fulfills the Ecology and Evolution area requirement in the Biology major. Prerequisite(s): BIOL 221 Genetics (4)   and CHEM 101 General Chemistry I (4)  -CHEM 102 General Chemistry II (4) . (As needed)
