BL 3900 - Field Biology

An opportunity for Rockhurst students to be exposed to the major ecosystems of the United States. A two-week intensive field experience that is prefaced by a semester-long weekly seminar discussing the uniqueness and general ecology of each ecosystem/biome to be visited on the trip. Areas visited have included Florida and the Keys, the desert Southwest, montane regions of Colorado, Yellowstone National Park, and the Boundary Waters of Minnesota. Under extraordinary circumstances a student may take, with permission, the course for one credit for both seminar and trip. No more than four hours from this listing may be counted toward a Biology major for any individual student.  Offered spring semesters of even-numbered years, alternating with BL 3920 .
