The species lists are linked.  Wasn't that a lovely day yesterday!
Thanks, Brenda, for the list!

Don't forget the Reverse Lecture for Wednesday!!!


I have updated and linked the syllabus to reflect the 4th Edition of Judd, et al.

I have set up a new set of links for our field trips, and have left the links from last spring.
These will help you to prepare, especially if you have not been able to acquire a copy of Porcher and Raynor.

Remember that namethatplant.net has Porcher's ecosystem essays!


FIELD TRIPS LEAVE AT 1:30 ON THE DOT FROM THE LIBRARY PARKING LOT.
Don't forget closed shoes!!!  You might want to re-read the syllabus details on field trips.


 
I am in the process of completely re-building this site after a recent computer meltdown.
Please let me know if you find broken links.

Thanks!

In 2009 I read an astonishing commentary on world poverty and hunger.  I want you to know what is really
going on with 44% of the world's population.  Yes, I said 44%.  Click on this pdf file, and put the word "generational" in
search line.  Or else, scroll to page 21.  Read every word of this commentary and give me some non-trivial feedback.
What can you do?  What WILL you do?
