|Program||FR–SRFreshmen–Senior||8||08||Day||Su 15 Session I Summer||Flight is one of the most fascinating phenomena in nature. It has evolved independently numerous times across several groups of animals. This program will investigate the evolution of flight and its ecological consequences. We will gain experience with standard methods for studying flying animals as we conduct biodiversity surveys at several field sites in the Olympia area. During the course of this program, we will learn key biological, ecological, and conservation concepts relating to flying organisms as well as common field, and analytical/laboratory methods associated with the study of biodiversity. As a group, we will produce inventories for key taxa (birds, dragonflies, and butterflies) at ecologically important field sites. This is a field-intensive program, and students can expect to spend a substantial amount of time in the field Tuesdays-Thursdays. Early morning work will occur 1-2 mornings per week, starting as early as first light (ca. 4:45 a.m.).Upper division science credit will be awarded for upper division work. A handout will be circulated the first week of class outlining the work and learning expectations for both regular credit and upper division science credit.||Alison Styring||Tue Tue Wed Wed Thu Thu||Freshmen FR Sophomore SO Junior JR Senior SR||Summer||Summer|
