Field Research in Ecology
Course Description. Students will conduct individual research projects based on testing hypotheses developed
from observations in a field setting. The majority of class time will be spent during a week at the
Harvard Forest field station prior to the Fall semester.
During the semester, we will briefly review the main types of experimental design and data analysis used by ecologists.
Each student will be responsible for a paper and presentation based on their research and for peer-reviewing
other's work. This class should provide a foundation for many of the necessary skills of an ecologist or organismal
