This course provides an introduction to the classification and identification of major insect orders and families found in Maryland. Identification will be considered within the context of ecological functions, economic importance and human significance. Although some examples will be provided, students are required to provide their own insect samples for identification either by enrolling concurrently in ENV522D or by other independent efforts.
