Professor Tom Jurik is offering a new seminar in the Spring 2020 semester for students interested in exploring how climate change impacts biology. The seminar will count as an advanced biology course for Biology majors and is graded on a satisfactory-fail basis. Students should have a good grasp of ecology before enrolling in the course and course activities will include reading the primary literature on the subject, guiding discussions, and giving presentations. There is a lot to study when it comes to the impacts of climate change on living organisms ranging from ocean acidification to changes in community structure.
