Tree of LIfe

From bacteria to whales, there are over 2 million known species on our planet Earth.  This amazing array of biodiversity is everywhere–even in places you cannot see, like deep underground. This course will explain how living organisms are related through the Tree of Life. With hands-on activities, hall and museum collection visits, and laboratory dissections students will learn how scientists organize biodiversity into classification systems using morphological and molecular data.

Meeting Dates: 11/3, 11/10, 11/15, 11/17, 11/22, 11/29, 12/1, 12/6, 12/8, 12/13, 12/15, 12/20
