(generally offered during the spring semester of odd years)
This class was designed to
provide a systems approach to biology - allowing us to explore many
different areas of biology as they relate to a single taxonomic
group, birds. Ornithology introduces students to the study of
birds, including evolution, anatomy and physiology, communication,
social behavior, and migration.
Labs include diversity work (both local and world-wide) at the Buffalo Museum of Science and
This class can be used to fulfill requirements for
the Biology Major (Track 1), the Environmental Science Major, and/or
the Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation Major at Canisius.
