Course Description:
Prerequisites: One year of college-level biology, chemistry, and mathematics or consent of instructor. The course provides a conceptual foundation and hands-on field and laboratory training in modern methods in aquatic microbial ecology. Lectures, laboratories, field trips, and in-class discussions will be used to explore topics such as physiology and metabolism of aquatic microbes; methods and tools for assessing microbial diversity, biomass, and growth; and the role of microbes in bioelemental cycles. Students will gain hands-on experience with both cultivation-based approaches and cultivation-independent methods for studying environmental micro-organisms. The heavy field-based emphasis is intended to provide an experiential learning environment. Instructor – Dr. Matthew Church, FLBS-U of Montana
