Natural History of Insects
Delve into the fascinating world of the creatures that make up 84% of the Animal Kingdom—what renowned biologist E.O. Wilson once called "the little things that run the world." We'll discuss the roles that insects play—both in maintaining healthy ecosystems as well as their own complex social systems. Explore the wonder of metamorphosis and the amazing variety of defensive strategies and adaptations they have developed to survive. We will also spend ample time in the field observing insects and learning to identify them.
