Birds: Inside and Out

We are aware of missing faculty photos in the directory and catalog and will be updating them shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Winter 2019 quarter

Taught by

biology, biochemistry


Students must have successfully completed 8 credits of college-level biology.

Birds are charismatic and conspicuous animals. They also serve as excellent models for understanding many biological concepts, including: evolution, physiology, behavior, and ecology. In this program we will study avian biology at the organism level (inside: physiological systems and adaptations of birds) as well as birds as components of ecosystems (outside: population and community ecology and avian social systems). Through lab and field work, students will gain a holistic understanding of avian biology and in the process will learn about birds commonly found in the Puget Sound area in springtime.
