CHEM - 330. Chemical Ecology


3 credit(s)
This course delves into the interdisciplinary field of Chemical Ecology through lectures and a week-long trip to Florida during Spring Break. Chemical Ecology is the study of how organisms interact through chemical means. We will explore topics including pheromones, hormones, chemical defenses, sequestration of chemicals, and biosynthetic origins of molecules. Prior to the trip to Florida, you will be provided with the fundamental knowledge base upon which you can build through experiential learning. The trip to Florida will include a 5 day/5 night stay at an independent biological research station (The Archbold Biological Station). Once in Florida, we will explore the world of chemical ecology through the primary literature, talks by the professor, guest lectures, and hands-on experience. There is a field trip fee.

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 210 .
