New course offering: “Discovering Biodiversity: Field to Database”

The School of Life Sciences will offer a new course next spring focused on specimens and specimen-based informatics practices. The new course, "Discovering Biodiversity: Field to Database," is open to both undergraduates and graduates, and will be held at the ASU Natural History Collections biodiversity teaching lab. The course provides students in ecology, conservation, anthropology, sustainability and museum science the opportunity to advance their understanding of biodiversity discovery methods. It is designed to address the question of how to create and process field- and specimen-based information that “drives our understanding of past, present and future trends in biodiversity.” Class size is limited. For more information, see the course information flier below or contact Nico Franz, director of the Biodiversity Knowledge Integration Center. Course information: DiscoveringBiodiversity-2016-Flyer
