ENT 470/670 - Insect Ecology

3 cr. In this course you will learn about the fundamental concepts of ecology as they relate to insects. We will emphasize how these ecological principles help inform other aspects of applied and basic research with insects. To do this we will use the current entomological and ecological literature and we will draw on examples from a broad range of natural and managed systems.

This course was last offered in Spring 2017 and is taught in Spring semesters of odd number years.

ENT 770 - Writing a Scientific Literature Review

3 cr. Hands-on exercises will help improve your scientific writing, peer-review, and self-assessment skills while working throughout the semester on two of your own papers.  The first half of the semester will be spent working on your scientific manuscript (if you have data) or your thesis proposal.  The second half will build on what you have done to help you develop a hypothesis-driven scientific literature review.
