The course is field and laboratory intensive and the students may stay in residence at the station during the two weeks.
This course focuses on the natural history, taxonomy, collection, and preservation of arthropods of medical importance that are found in the Southern Appalachians. Students will participate in a class field project investigating the ecology of rock pool mosquitoes within the Chattooga River watershed. Intensive field and laboratory exercises will accompany didactic instruction. This course is designed for advanced students and K-12 educators with a strong biological background. Students should be prepared for moderate hiking and traversing some riverine environments.
As part of this course, we will be collecting both in the Great Smoky National Park and within the Chattooga River watershed.
