Our group offers a range of courses relating to insect biology, plant-insect interactions, and the role of communication in mediating interspecific ecological interactions. These courses are targeted primarily to students in Environmental Systems Science (D-USYS), Biology (D-BIOL), and other life-science disciplines, and are designed to provide students with an clear understanding of core concepts, as well as familiarity with important open questions in basic and applied science and the research techniques and methods that can be brought to bear on such questions.
