BIO 342 - Herpetology with Lab
Herpetology with Lab
Prerequisites: BIO 120, BIO 130, BIO 220 and BIO 230 ; each course must have been completed with a final grade of C- or better.

This summer course provides biology majors with an introduction to herpetology, the study of amphibians and repiles. An emphasis is placed on evolutionary patterns and processes, through which we examine how organisms interact with the biotic and abiotic components of their environment. Additionally, we consider how these interactions shape the diversity and distribution of amphibian and reptile assemblages from local to global scales. We also consider the relevance of amphibians and reptiles to other applied branches of biology, including conservation and invasion ecology. During our laboratory sessions, we use standard field techniques to survey and analyze the diversity of herpetofaunal communities throughout Connecticut.
