BIO3441/6441 «La Systématique des insectes»

This course is offered Wednesday afternoons in the fall each year. BIO2440 «Entomologie» or an equivalent course at another university is a prerequisite. Undergraduates register for BIO3441, whereas graduate students take BIO6441. For all intents and purpose, theses are the same courses. The laboratory and lecture/discussion sections are integrated into one open session of hands-on learning. The course begins with an intensive three-day session at the University’s Laurentian Biological Research Station.

flyer for the course provides more details and a web page describes the collection each student must prepare.
