BIO 47: Introduction to Research in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

The goal of this course is to develop an understanding of how to conduct biological research, using a topic in Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, and Plant Biology as a practical example. This includes the complete scientific process: assessing background literature, generating testable hypotheses, learning techniques for field- and lab- based data collection, analyzing data using appropriate statistical methods and finally writing and sharing the results. To build these skills, this course focuses on nectar microbes at Stanfords nearby Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. Students, working in teams, will develop novel research hypotheses and do the necessary data analyses to test these hypotheses. The capstone of the course is a research paper written in the style of a peer-reviewed journal article as well as an oral defense of students research findings. Because the course will be offered online this year, we will analyze the data collected in previous years rather than conduct field and lab experiments in person. Although there are no pre-requisites to enroll in the class, it will be helpful if you have already taken BIO 81 or are concurrently enrolled in or have already taken the relevant HumBio core class. Note: Satisfies WIM in Biology.
