The Woods in Winter
This course satisfies Division I requirements.
New England winter days are short, dry and often very cold. Yet, plants and animals survive these harsh conditions and some even manage to stay active. We will explore the patterns of temperature, humidity, insolation and heat flow that characterize winter conditions, then learn about animal and plant adaptations using readings, and lab and field projects. NOTE: There will be an additional required class meeting on Thursday, January 21st from 10am-12pm and 1-4pm.
