BIOL 303 - Chemical Ecology

FC NSMA
4 credits
Organisms dispense and receive molecules as a form of invisible and soundless communication. This language is utilized to find homes, mates, and prey; to identify enemies, friends, and family. Chemicals are used to defend, offend, and cooperate. This course will examine how chemical communication mediates relationships between organisms and between organisms and their environment. An affinity for chemistry is not required; rather an appreciation for the chemistry that mediates ecological interactions is something we will work toward as a class.

Prerequisites: BIOL 200.
