Join us at LUREC as we use the organisms around us to learn about the biodiversity of life; including the systematics and comparative anatomy and physiology of selected organisms. This course complements General Biology I lecture material through direct observation and field sampling. Students will utilize the natural habitats surrounding the LUREC campus in Woodstock, Illinois, to conduct laboratory work. This onsite (and natural) lab will enable you to have a greater focus on the ecological aspects of diversity than the usual lab provides.
