Experimental Biology of Invertebrates is an upper level biology course (Biology 326) taught every spring by Dr. Chris Harley at the University of British Columbia.
Biology 326 focuses on the ecology of invertebrates, and covers topics ranging from physiology to behavior. The students explore these topics through field surveys and laboratory based experiments. The emphasis of our course is on posing scientific questions, generating and testing hypotheses, and presenting our newly acquired knowledge with both our scientific peers and an interested public.
In this blog, the students of 326 will share their process as scientists starting with careful observations through the documentation of biological pattern and process and ending with an understanding of how this information relates to the world around us.
