209. Vertebrate Natural History.

A field-oriented course that explores the biology of vertebrate animals,
with emphasis on understanding the diversity, life history, evolution
and unique adaptations of vertebrates. The laboratory focus is on
developing scientifically sound skills in observation and on learning
to identify local vertebrates. Some extra class meetings are required
for regional field excursions and for early-morning bird-watching sessions.
Prerequisite: Biology 101,102. Also offered as Environmental
Studies 209 and through Outdoor Studies.
