STUDENTS
The intended objectives and content of the course are described on the Course Description page. The majority of students are Biology majors who are using the course to fulfill the Laboratory Requirement of that major. They know very little about plants; that subject gets little real attention in BIOL 1107 or 1108, the introductory courses for students in the Division of Biological Sciences, including those majoring in Plant Biology. There have been a few Plant Biology majors using the course as a PBIO major elective, although now it can be used as an Ecology Subject course for the major.

Most students are very pleased with the nontraditional format of the course and adapt to it very well; small class size; getting to know other students in their majors; few lectures and most of those devoted to skills; no exams; lots of field trips with their opportunity to get out of a classroom; learning how to identify plants in a more informal fashion that in PBIO 4650/6650 Plant Taxonomy; and having some control over the goals of the semester and its day-to-day activities. This is also often the first, and unfortunately often the only, undergraduate course in which they may meaningfully interact with an instructor.

Photos and brief profiles of each student are available on the semester pages listed on the left sidebar.
