Professors Thomas Givnish and Kate McCulloh
Weekly meetings in Spring and Fall 2018 / Field trip in August
Australian plants and animals have long evolved in isolation, often under extreme conditions. We will explore the physiological ecology of plants along a steep rainfall gradient in se Australia, from some of tallest rain forests in the world to mallee scrub. We will visit a wide range of habitats and conduct research during a 16-day field trip to Victoria, complemented by lab work and writing papers for publication.

- Requires registration for 1 cr in spring, 3 cr in fall
- Cost roughly $1600/student, substantially reduced by a generous grant from the Humboldt Fund
