Graduate Courses

16:370:504(S) Mosquito Biology (3) Biology, physiology, and behavior of mosquitoes on a worldwide basis; emphasis on current techniques used in field and laboratory investigations. Crans. Lec. 2 hrs., lab. 3 hrs. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor.
16:370:506(S) Integrated Pest Management (3) Systems approach for measuring major ecological processes, such as development, mortality, and dispersal, presented as a means for evaluating pheromones, biocontrol, and cultural and pesticidal strategies in major crops. Lashomb. Prerequisite: A background in entomology or other pest sciences and ecology. Recommended: Statistics. Students who lack background in these areas must obtain permission from the instructor.
16:370:507(S) Biological Control of Insect Pests (3) Concepts and methods involved in the control of harmful insects and mites through the use of parasites, predators, and pathogens. Gaugler. Prerequisite: General ecology.
16:370:511(F) Principles of Systematics (3) Taxonomy, species concepts, methods of contemporary systematic research, and zoogeographic analysis. Kjer. Lec. 2 hrs., lab. 3 hrs.
16:370:515,516(F) Insect Structure and Function (3,3) Physiology and functional morphology, including response systems, sensory systems, energy utilization, transport and secretion, and renewal systems. Brattsten, May. Lec. 3 hrs., lab. 3 hrs. Prerequisite: 11:370:381 or equivalent. Required core course.
16:370:517(S) Insect-Plant Biochemical Interactions (3) Biochemical aspects of interactions between herbivorous insects and their host plants, in particular those that involve adaptations to toxic plant allelochemicals. Biochemical aspects include metabolic and physiological defense mechanisms and mode of action and fate of phytochemicals. Brattsten. See also 16:215:595. Prerequisites: Organic chemistry, biochemistry.
16:370:519(F) Insect Behavior (3) Insect behavior from a functional standpoint: stimuli and responses; adaptative significance and evolutionary context; underlying physiological mechanisms. May. Prerequisite: Background in entomology and/or animal behavior.
16:370:522(S) Toxicology of Pesticides (3) Mode of action, metabolism, and side effects of pesticides; their use in IPM, resistance mechanisms, and development; health, registration, and legal aspects. Brattsten. Lec. 2 hrs. Prerequisite: Advanced undergraduate biochemistry.
16:370:524(S) Insect Taxonomy (4) Insect systematics, identification, natural history, and evolution. Emphasizes North American insects at the family level. Kjer. Lec. 2 hrs., lab. 6 hrs. Required core course.
16:370:525(S) Insect Ecology (3) Relationship between insect populations and elements of the physical and biotic environment. Emphasis on principles governing population size, quality, and spatial and temporal variation. Lashomb. Prerequisite: General ecology.
16:370:601,602Special Topics in Entomology (BA,BA) Each term, faculty members arrange a series of topics in specialized fields of entomology.
16:370:603,604Seminar in Entomology (1,1) Discussion and critique of presentations by guest speakers. Required core course (2 terms for M.S.; 3 terms for Ph.D.).
16:370:605Insect Collection (1) Students make a properly curated, labeled, and identified insect collection. Kjer. Prerequisite: 16:370:524.
16:370:701,702Research in Entomology (BA,BA)
