|COURSE OBJECTIVES:||Although all of us are aware of insects, few take the time to appreciate the vast numbers of species and the great diversity of life styles in the class insecta. These six-footed beasts are found in nearly every conceivable environment on earth, and so they provide an excellent window onto the natural world. We will gain deeper insights into the interrelationship of all living organisms as we explore the lives of insects. This course should give you a many faceted view of the biological world.|
