EEB 3894 Course Objectives:

The purpose of this course is to explore the ecology and evolutionary biology research being conducted by top researchers in these fields. The Ecology & Evolutionary Biology Department invites the highest caliber scientist to UConn as part of a weekly seminar series. Our class with have the opportunity to meet with these researchers in a comfortable, round-table table discussion each week. Prior to each discussion, as a group we will examine related scientific literature, learning how to critically read and interpret data from a variety of study systems. Following our discussions with the visiting researchers, we will attend the their formal lecture to the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology Department. Students will become critical readers of primary scientific literature, will be familiar with major research avenues in ecology and evolutionary biology, and will become comfortable asking questions and interacting with visiting scientists.
