This course will introduce graduate students to advanced topics in insect ecology. Students will
review both foundational and current research in peer-reviewed journals on insect interactions
and behavior. A broad overview of the major insect orders and their development will be
covered. We will also explore distribution patterns, diversity, insect-plant co-evolution, and
common interactions in insect communities as they relate to each other and other organisms.
