This science course is a union of zoology, ecology, botany and microbiology and is built to foster an understanding of Bay Area biodiversity through a hands-on approach to science. Students will employ various sampling techniques, including pitfall traps for insects, motion detection cameras for animals, quadrant sampling for plants, and sterile cell culture for microorganisms. They will also explore several components that influence biodiversity, including abiotic factors, animal behavior and, of course, human activities.
