Courses Taught

  • Scientific Writing, Editing, and Revising in the Biological Sciences (Abby Powell 2015)
  • Independent Study in Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation Introduction to sea turtle life history, nesting ecology, threats, and research and conservation techniques. (Raymond Carthy 2014)
  • Animal Migration A survey of literature on migration ecology ranging from theory to applied issues of animal migration for a range of taxa (fish, insects, birds, mammals). Topics covered will include understanding the mechanisms of migration, migratory connectivity and seasonal interactions, evolutionary theory, animal behavior, and conservation/management. The goals of the course are to a) gain background knowledge and perspective about animal migration, and b) develop critical reading and analysis skills. Both goals will be met by reading, presenting, and discussing classic and modern literature on animal migration.
