The species lists from today are linked.

I've looked over our schedule, and the ABSOLUTE LAST DAY
I will accept papers will be 25 April, noon.  I need paper copies, and don't
forget that you are required to submit your papers for a plagiarism check - see the
syllabus for details.

Remember, I've also linked a really nice paper from last fall in the Handouts section.

We are on track with our original schedule, and hopefully will not need to meet on the 25th, but
please let me know if you would like to have a review session, or the "Ecotour".

Our lecture final exam will be on 29 April, 12-3pm, in our regular classroom.
Our lab final exam is next Monday, the 21st.



 
I am in the process of completely re-building this site after a computer meltdown
last summer.  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.
