BIO 335 - Chemical Ecology (1)

This course explores how organisms use naturally occurring chemicals to influence ecological interactions. Case studies will illustrate both interspecific and intraspecific interactions among plants, insects, animals, and microbes, including behaviors such as mate selection, colony organization, and defense. Some attention will be given to the biochemical origins of these compounds. Prerequisite: BIO 205 . Alternate years.
